A sunburst chart shows the hierarchical nature of a dataset. These charts are a variant of classical tree, or a radial version of an icicle diagram. The root level is located in the center, the position of levels compared to each other shows their rank in the structure's hierarchy, and the size of each level is determined by its weight (a value present in the workbook chosen by the user).


Configuring the Sunburst Chart - Widget

Here you can find out what kind of data can be represented as a sunburst chart and what options you have to represent your data. General steps for configuring widgets are explained on the Visualizing Data page.

Data Requirements

The different levels can be made up of any type of Datameer supported data. The weight applied to the data is that of the number of elements represented.  Please note that if two or more workbook rows are the same, then these non-unique rows will not be shown in the sunburst chart.
