I have been hunting all over for a tutorial on how to build arc/rainbow graphs like the one in the picture.enter image description here I'm confident that I could make paths line up with one another like that but I need a way to get the paths to be sized proportionally to corresponding data. Any ideas?

  • Related: Is math needed for graphic design?. If you mention any specific software, it could be scriptable for that. The math ain't that hard. – usr2564301 Oct 10 '18 at 21:12

  • as a sidenote: if you actually need people to read/understand your data easily and "accurately", this seems like a pretty bad kind of chart to use. (if you just go for "ooh, pretty!", then go ahead ☺) – J.E Oct 11 '18 at 9:06
  • Do you need automatic redrawing when the data changes? If you have fixed data and no need to track data changes, making this as a normal Illustrator drawing is quite elementary. Inform, if you can accept the non-live data version. – user287001 Oct 12 '18 at 10:06
  • I am using illustrator. It does not need automatic redrawing. – jseymour186 Oct 17 '18 at 20:57
