Pixels are the new Pies

Pixel Pie Chart (16kb)

Pixel charts are the new Pies. Pie charts are used for decades to show percentage or relative information.

Instead of the circle, a grid of 100 pixels, ten by ten, is used as 100%. The different colors denote the different portions.

I t seems not a really unique display method as there is already a Wikipedia article about this thing officially called a treemap.
