DONUT PLOT

A donut chart is essentially a Pie Chart with an area of the center cut out. However, it is much more appreciated on a data viz point of view, as explained in data-to-viz.com.

You can do it with python and the matplotlib library. Its construction relies on the use of the plt.pie function. Then, add a circle at the center or play with the radius and width arguments.

A more generic function to build donut plots would be welcome so do not hesitate if you know one!
