This is a nice way to show a "spectrum" or "arc" of related thoughts/ideas/objects. These frameworks can even be used as a bullet alternatives and trackers. They are also a nice alternative to a segmented circle, which are frequently used to show pieces of a non-data-driven whole. The built-in halos can provide additional information, overarching labels, or effects that radiate from the arc.
The series example uses circles on the inside of the arc to add another level of information, but they are not built into the templates. See also the imported photo segments that create a whole picture? See the tutorial for the easy steps to create this formatting.
