HOW TO CREATE 3D PIE CHART IN GOOGLE SHEETS

INTRODUCTION

CHARTS are the graphic representation of any data . Google Sheets provide us a number of visualization options in the form of different charts and graphs etc.

Excel gives us a variety of charts which are beautiful, colorful, more customizable and more powerful.

In this article we are going to discuss one particular type of the charts which are known as PIE CHART.

3D PIE CHARTS SHOW THE DATA IN THE FORM OF A CIRCLE (PIE) WHERE THE AREA OF EACH SLICE REPRESENTS THE PERCENTAGE OF A PARTICULAR ITEM IN THE WHOLE PROCESS.

In 3D PIE CHARTS, the area shown by a portion shows the percentage or value of particular category.

We’ll discuss in detail, the different processes to create PIE CHARTS.

 

THIS ARTICLE IS IN CONTINUATION WITH HOW TO MAKE PIE CHARTS IN GOOGLE SHEETS.

3D PIE CHARTS VS PIE CHARTS

THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 3D PIE CHARTS AND NORMAL PIE CHARTS EXCEPT IN THE LOOKS. THE 3D PIE CHART HAS A 3D LOOK WHEREAS PIE CHARTS HAVE A FLAT LOOK.

It is just about the preference which look you like personally.

Normally 3D look is more attractive.

WHERE IS THE OPTION FOR 3D PIE CHARTS IN GOOGLE SHEETS

The 3D pie chart can be easily inserted by the chart button on the toolbar itself.

The button location is shown in the picture below.
