Radar – an overview
What is it for?
This template is great for comparing multiple attributes of different entities in the form of radar/spider, radial bar or star charts.
How to get started
We've written a blog post on why these star charts are sometimes more suitable than normal radars.
Another feature of our radar charts is the ability to combine radars together. Under Controls, you can choose to have the combined option available, which layers radars on top of each other.
You can also add a Grid of charts column binding in the Data tab to combine radars based on another category in your dataset.
The grid of charts is responsive, so if the number of columns is set to Auto, they will adjust automatically depending on the size of the window and your minimum and maximum chart settings.
If combined radars look too cluttered, you could opt for comparison lines instead. These are more subtle outlines of the other radars in your data, which can be easier for comparison. Under Shapes, turn on comparison lines and adjust the styles of the lines and fill.
If you want to add outer labels to group metrics more broadly, you can add these in the Radial axis settings. Enter one per line, specifying the angle you'd like them positioned (0-360°).
