Where is Wheel diagram used in presentations?
A Wheel diagram is a useful tool for visualizing hub and spoke relationships in presentations. It can be used to represent:
- A role and its associated responsibilities
- A core concept and its related ideas
- The four quarters of a year or four seasons etc.
You can customize the number of segments, layers, and colors to suit your specific needs. Now, let's get started creating the diagram!
Step 1: Draw the base segment
Utilize the 'Pie' tool in the Auto Shapes menu to create a quarter segment as follows:
Step 2: Complete the wheel shape
Duplicate the segment three more times to complete the circle.
Group the four segments using ‘Ctrl+ G’ option.
Step 3: Add the 2nd Layer
Duplicate the group (Ctrl+D Shortcut).
Right-click on the copy, select Size and Position, and then check the box next to 'Lock aspect ratio' and enter a value of 70%. Align both shapes to the center and middle by selecting Arrange > Align Center and Align Middle. This will produce the base 2 layer segmented diagram.
