Visual Awesomeness Unlocked: Pyramid 3D Chart by Collabion

Like the name suggests, a pyramid chart has a triangular structure. Lines run across it, dividing it into sections with thicknesses proportional to their values. A pyramid chart represents data in the form of percentages, with the whole chart representing 100%. A pyramid 3D chart built with Collabion helps you visualize the total data, as well as the hierarchical structure of it, in the form of a pyramid-like structure. A filtered pyramid chart, on the other hand, is represented in the form of a graduated glass pyramid filled by liquid, where the graduations indicate the values of different sections after data filtration.
