Field Comment
Determine by Select an attribute which value will determine the actual pie size. If no attribute was selected the radius minimum value will be the fixed pie chart size.
Radius minimum Enter the minimum radius of the pie chart.
Radius maximum Enter the maximum radius of the pie chart.
The pie chart size will be interpolated between radius maximum en minimum according to the attribute value.
Size Unit Select the size unit of entered radius. See size unit

The size can be determined by an attribute value:

  • choose the attribute that must determine the actual size,
  • define a minimal and maximal size of the pie chart in pixels on screen,
  • the pie chart size will be interpolated according to the attribute value.

Note: It is also possible to use meta-attributes such as row count (amount of records) for this attribute.
