How to create a pictorial chart with Datylon for Illustrator plug-in

With the Datylon for Illustrator plug-in, it is possible to create a pictorial chart by combining the plug-in with the pathfinding tool and using layers in Adobe Illustrator. First, start with the design of your data visualization project and create a mask layer in the background of your design. Behind that mask layer, the charts will be placed later on.
