What they say about Datylon

"The best thing about Datylon is the incredible level of customization that is possible for every chart. [...] It's easy to change colors, font sizing, data-point positioning, labels, etc."

- Anneka, Senior Graphic Designer

"The other products were either too data analysis centric or didn't have enough styling options.
I use Datylon as a designer, not as an analyst, so I really care about ease of creation, ease of editing and the overall look."

- Emily, Creative Director

"I feel like we (designers) finally have an easy-to-use tool that doesn't lack
the customizability and design aesthetic that other graph maker tools tend to have".

- Josh, Layout Designer

What is a pie chart?

A pie chart (pie graph or circular graph) visualizes a part-to-whole relationship. It shows how the data is divided into categories with a certain value (the slices), but it always keeps the link between the value of one category and the total sum of those categories (the pie).

This means that the slices should add up to a logical sum. If the data is in percentages, the total should round up to a hundred. If the data is in absolute values, for example in euros, the categories should form a meaningful total. 

This relative approach of comparing a part to a whole is key to understanding how to use a pie chart. If the focus of the visualization is on comparing values between categories, it’s better to use another chart type.

A pie chart works best with only a few categories, otherwise, the chart becomes an unreadable clutter. It is also very suitable when one category is very big or very small compared to the other categories. But if the differences between the categories and thus between the slices are small and not easily recognizable, another chart - for example a bar chart - is much better suited.

A pie chart visualizes a part-to-whole relationship. This is a pie chart example.
