Use case example: Revenue from top 5 customers

The sunburst chart (also known as multi-level pie chart, radial treemap) in above example shows revenue generated by an organization in a given period, from top 5 customers in B2B and B2C segments, using 2 levels of rings.

The first level shows categories (B2B and B2C segments in this example) divided in slices. The second level shows sub-categories (names of customers within each segment) that belong to each main category. The arc length of each category as well as sub-category slice is proportional to the value it represents.

Simply by looking at sizes of the slices, we can see that among top 5 B2B and B2C customers of this organization, it generates more revenue from B2B customers as compared to the B2C segment.
