DD016 – Data-Driven Charts 016 – Radar Charts
Radar charts can be effective if only a few comparisons are being made. Radar charts with too many "lines" are useless because the information is too dense and quick and easy interpretations are impossible.
The series example does a good job of conveying distinctive, clear information using this chart type. Column and line charts can also be used to present this data, but there is not visual "cycle" aspect with these types of charts.
Consider matching these charts up with a circular flow. This combination of radar/circular flow charts might offer a polished and unique display for this type of message.
