Makeover Monday: Salvaging the DATAVERSITY 3D Exploding Pie

No comments
Reader Tim Messar sent me the following tweet this morning, clearly a desperate plea for a makeover:

Tim linked to this tweet from Kirk Borne promoting an exploding 3D pie chart.

My first thought was back to the great Darkhorse Analytics post entitled “Salvaging the Pie”. I thought I’d follow a similar process with a combination of Excel and Tableau. I started by reproducing the 3D pie chart in Excel, which looked remarkably like the original, including the default colors. Follow through the story points for the step-by-step process of the makeover.
