Alternative to a Bar Chart

Alternative to a Bar Chart

Bar charts can be a bit boring. I wanted to create something with a bit of movement in it. The angle each circle runs to is in correct proportion to its value, using the UK’s €24 as a baseline at 270 degrees.

The numbers are taken from a Europa.eu report. I’m not 100% convinced they’re right, but they are what they are. In any event, my aim wasn’t to represent specific numbers, rather test the design.

I think it stands out, and they’re not too difficult to create. Could be a useful addition to the toolkit.
