Pie Map chart is a set of pie charts, using a X-Y data to locate the pies. Each pie chart is created by one row of the Y columns for pie wedges. Furthermore, you can control the pie size by using another column or the wedge total, much like the Bubble Plot.

To control how to show the pie charts in color and size, you can go to the Symbol tab of Plot Details dialog.

You can press Ctrl key to double-click one pie chart to add a special point and drag to reposition this pie.

For more controls such as adding labels, Origin will treat the pies as symbols.
