This is perhaps my favourite version of the pi visuals I made purely because it actually uses pi in calculating how many dots will fit on each ring of the graphic.

    Cool! This is definitely my favorite of the three.

    Just looked at this again. I really like it.

    I see from your code that your sample circle has a total of 95 concentric rings, enough to completely fill the default 1000 x 1000 page size. But how many dots (equals digits of pi) does it have? I used a lookup to find the answer:

    28, 607

    Since your csv file contains 100, 000 digits, you could make this circle significantly bigger if you wanted (say, for printing to a billboard somewhere). But 28 thousand is pretty impressive as is.
