What are Harvey Balls?

Harvey Balls are spherical shapes that represent non-numerical data like satisfaction, taste etc. that cannot be depicted through charts and graphs. They can be read by examining the portion of filled space in the ball. For example, If two types of pizzas are being compared on their taste and the Harvey Ball corresponding to the second pizza is 75% filled compared to the 50% of the first pizza; we can conclusively say that people found the second pizza to be tastier. Harvey Balls are great non-numerical data representation tools and can make your charts and infographics extremely readable and minimal.
