Create a dependency wheel chart in everviz

Follow the steps in this article to create a dependency wheel chart in everviz.

Dependency wheel charts are great for seeing relationships between categories and the data flow between them. The data flow between categories is bi-directional, so you can see inequalities easily, and see which categories are more dependent on others and which are more dependent on them, et cetera.

The example we’ll create lets us see the flow of sales leads between a bank’s teams to see where the most leads are generated.

To create a dependency wheel chart:

  • Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard
  • Select Dependency wheel from the Chart type section to the left of the chart wizard’s screen. Notice that the preview pane changes to reflect the chart type you’ve chosen
  • Click Next to move to the Data step where you can enter the data for your chart
  • Click the top-left cell (A1) in the data table and press CTRL+A to select all the data in it
  • Press the delete key to remove the example data
  • Copy this example data and paste it into the data table at the top-left cell (A1). You’ll see the newly added data reflected in the preview chart
  • If the chart doesn’t look correct, use the drop-down From, To and Weight controls to select the correct columns for each control.
  • Click Next to move to the Design screen where you can choose a theme for your chart. Click an available theme to see how it looks, or stick with the default theme
  • Click Next to move to the Text & Annotations screen where you can add contextual information to your chart, such as a title, axis labels and a caption
  • Click Next to move to the Save or Publish screen where you can save your chart for later amendment or use, or publish your chart
  • Alternatively, you can click the Continue in Editor button to edit the chart further with more granular options
