Pie chart: planetary masses

Full Screen

This pie chart shows the planetary masses of the four gaseous planets, four rocky planets and five dwarf planets (according to the conventions of the International Astronomical Union). Because of the difference in magnitude of the masses of these three groups of planets, each group was placed in a separate bar chart.

There are three stacked pie charts. You can navigate downwards by clicking on the slice which represents the total mass of the remaining planets. If you click the center, the graph will be reloaded.

The data in JSON format was obtained from the NASA JPL databases as CSV and later converted to XML, and then JSON.
