Pie Charts for Maps Showing Statistics

Pie charts are suitable to present percentage breakdown of a dataset. It shows up as different sectors in which the length of each arc corresponds to the proportion of the data represented. It will be useful when combining interactive maps and pie charts to show the data of different regions and it's popular among businesses and mass media.

Pie charts can be useful if you have a relatively small number of categories to be shown, as it may become difficult for our eyes to perceive the size of the sector if a large number of categories are made into pie charts. Color selections are also important to clearly distinguish each sector for easier figuring out the relationship between them.
