SectorOrigin

SectorOrigin
is an option to PieChart and related functions that specifies where sectors should start.
Automaticdetermine the position of the first sector automatically
Left,Right,Top,Bottomstart the first sector in the specified direction
Thetastart the first sector Theta radians from the positive x axis
  • SectorOrigin->Theta specifies that the first sector should begin at angle Theta counterclockwise from the positive x axis.
  • By default, sectors are added clockwise starting from the first sector.
  • SectorOrigin->{pos, sense} specifies the sense in which sectors should be added. Possible values are -1 (or "Clockwise") and 1 (or "Counterclockwise").
  • For donut-like charts, SectionOrigin->{{pos, sense}, r} specifies that sectors should have inner radius r.
  • In PieChart and PieChart3D, r gives the fraction of the width of the annulus for each sector.
