The geom_scatterpie is especially useful for visualizing data on a map.

world <- map_data('world')
p <- ggplot(world, aes(long, lat)) +
    geom_map(map=world, aes(map_id=region), fill=NA, color="black") +
    coord_quickmap()
p + geom_scatterpie(aes(x=long, y=lat, group=region, r=radius),
                    data=d, cols=LETTERS[1:4], color=NA, alpha=.8) +
    geom_scatterpie_legend(d$radius, x=-160, y=-55)

p + geom_scatterpie(aes(x=long, y=lat, group=region, r=radius),
                    data=d, cols=LETTERS[1:4], color=NA, alpha=.8) +
