Radial Chart with Nodebox3

I was wondering if NB3 can be used to plot a Radial Chart type. It has several different names: radial tree, radial space filling etc.

I didn't found a discussion regarding this. I did found at data visualization tutorials the random pie example but its not quite it.

I send an image to illustrate my point.

If the answer is yes does anyone has posted a project to take a look at?

thanks in advance!

    Hi Pablo,

    Yes, NodeBox can definitely do radial charts. In fact NodeBox is particularly well suited to this type of chart. I've seen many such charts in the forum and have done several myself.

    Here are some examples.

    The data viz tutorial includes a radial charts example:

    Not exactly the same, but similar:

    Subnetworks that can make labeling radial charts easier:

    Discussion includes some radial chart visuals:


    A grid of pie (ring) charts:

    Another collection of pie charts:

    I think there are more out there. I suggest you give it a try in NodeBox. If you get stuck please post another note here and I will be glad to help.

    NODEBOX 3 allows you to make with plenty of work to create radial charts. But it has its limitations and challenges. I made a year ago something. Maybe it gives you a hint.


    But John is the Master of Nodebox! He helped me several times creating my solution. Important is the file you create to load the calculations. You are able to create the file with all the radius calculation in a csv or calculate them inside of Nodebox. I did the second one and calculated all from raw data. Hope it helps

    Regards Andy

    Thanks both of you Andy and John.

    I will try to design it and will call for help if I get stuck (what it will probably occur haha)

    Regards Pablo
