Part of series: DD016 – Data-Driven Chart 016 Radar Charts
Radar charts are not used very often, but they can be a good choice if there are only a few comparisons. When too many data "lines" are used, the chart is impossible to read easily. The series example is a fairly effective use of this type of chart. Column charts and line charts can also be used to convey the data, but there is no visual cycle aspect when using these charts.
Remember to use these charts only when interpretation of the data can be made quickly.
