Double pie chart re-design implemented!

Saturday March 15, 2014

Back in October I mocked up a re-design for a pair of pie charts in connection with a DC Action for Children project. I haven't been contributing to the project much since, but I was very excited to see that Margo Smith got involved through DataKind and implemented (and improved!) my mock-up using d3. Currently the project is still in progress but Margo's work has already been incorporated.

The original double pie chart:

And it's not just better as a static viz - the live version also animates and adaptively adjusts label positions, really making it fun and revealing to interact with the DC Action for Children map. Very cool to see this come to life!

If you'd like to contribute to this project, check the github and/or get in touch with @nickmcclellan!
