Sunburst chart is useful for visualizing hierarchical data. The center circle represents the root level in the hierarchy, with outer circles representing the higher levels of the hierarchy.
Data points can be easily annotated with labels to help improve the readability of data.
Legends provide additional information that is helpful in identifying root nodes in a sunburst chart. They can be docked to the left, right, top, or bottom positions around the chart area. By clicking the legend item, we can toggle segment visibility or highlight the segment.
