Sunburst Widget

The Sunburst widget is similar to a pie chart but is multi-dimensional. Whereas a pie chart combines one field and one numeric value, the Sunburst widget can display multiple rings, one for each field. Each ring in the Sunburst shows a breakdown of its parent ring slice.

Adding Data

  1. In the Categories panel, select the fields whose values will be represented as slices of the ring.
    Typically, the Categories of a Sunburst widget contain descriptive data. Multiple fields can be added, so that each field is represented as a ring whose values are broken up by its parent ring slice.
    You can reorder the fields using drag and drop.
  2. In the Values panel, click Add + to select the field whose values determine the size of the ring. Values are typically used to represent numeric data.
    You can only add one field.
