  1. The pie chart link is interesting. I have seen variations on this before. For instance, rose plots. Here are some examples:

    In these instances, the rose plots are being used as histograms for angular quantities, but they have been used to represent crosstabulated data, as well.

    For anyone interested in this subject in general, I suggest: “Information Visualization in Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery”, by Fayyad et al.
