Donut chart with D3
The donut chart is a variation of a pie charts, with the total amount divided into categories based on a proportional value. For the most part, there aren’t significant differences between a pie chart and a donut chart, so the choice of a donut over a standard circle is mostly aesthetic. One small advantage for the ring shape is that the central area can be used to show additional information such as the total amount figure.
