What is a half pie chart?
A half pie chart (also, half moon or semicircle chart) is a 180 degrees graph that represents the composition of a whole. Its total arc area corresponds to 100%, and its slices illustrate the part-to-whole relationships.
The half pie chart works like a regular pie chart. Its main advantage over the full circle graph is that it takes less space in your layout.
Because its form corresponds to the broadly adopted Parliament hemicycle, the half pie chart is often used to illustrate elections results and the composition of legislatures and assemblies. In this case, the slices are usually plotted with the political colors associated with the parties, and they are organized according to the seating plan of the house or the ideological positions, from left to right.
