Comparison Chart - Radar

Comparison Charts allow you to view yearly KPI information side by side.

Usually, time-based KPI data is displayed along the X-Axis; comparison charts allows values which occured at the same time in different years (e.g. January in 2011 and 2012) to be grouped together.

A Radar Chart compares overall yearly values for different time intervals. However, it makes both trend and value information hard to compare.

TIPS: If you have data which is erratic year by year, this might be better represented in other charts. Radar charts are optimised for showing the overall difference between KPIs, so you should consider other charts if you don’t wish to emphasise this.
