Chocolate Cream Pie

3 comments
Oh how I love pie! They are delectable, delightful and delicious. Better yet, they're interactive; who can't use an interactive pie? Click on the image. I promise, you'll love it.



Some things I like (wink, wink):
  1. The colors get darker the farther out from the radius you go. I guess you could say they radiate.
  2. The pie doesn't start at the zero degree mark for easier ranking/comparisons.
  3. The level of precision...people must really care about the 1/10,000th of a percent of an award.
  4. What takes the cake, I mean pie, is the interactivity. You have to try it out; it's worth the giggle.

Don't fret. There's more pie on the buffet:

Nobel Peace Prize Winners by Gender (I like how this chart sort of "swirls" in when the page loads...fancy stuff!)

Nobel Prize Winners in Physics by Gender (The 1.0695% of women who won are probably more upset about this pie chart than any apparent sexism.)

I will give ChartsBin some credit though. Their interactive maps are quite good. They're very similar to the maps on Google Analytics.

  1. No, it is not about sexism. Simply in many countries situation of women is very difficult.

  2. I was being sarcastic about the sexism. :-) My comment was meant to say that the women who won would be upset by the precision of the measurement.
