UNESCO World Heritage Sites in a Marimekko Chart with Data Rows and Data Columns
How I Made this Marimekko Chart with Data Rows and Data Columns
Here is the UNESCO World Heritage Sites data I used to create the Marimekko chart:
Here's how I made the Marimekko chart:
- copy the data from the UNESCO site into Excel (A1:D7 above)
- add the columns for example sites and the row for % to the Excel, placing a blank space in cell F1 to allow the data columns to be populated
- create a Marimekko chart in PowerPoint based on the above data range
- use Switch Bars Series to treat the rows as bars and columns as series
- designate the Total and % rows as data columns and columns E and F as data rows
- show names, values and percentages in segment labels and values and percentages in bar totals
- hide the grand total and use Auto Total to show the total of the data column
- adjust margins, align data rows, annotate smaller label
