Radar Chart

Radar charts display categorical data in a ring shape, with multiple KPIs represented by points on the edge of the ring. It is perfect for comparing KPI values for multiple category entries.

Radar Charts are also called web diagrams or spider diagrams.

TIPS: Radar charts are best used to show how different category items compare to each other in several KPIs, giving an overall impression of progress. However, they can’t show a part-whole relationship like a pie chart, limiting their use.

Radar charts are not the best choice of chart if your categories have larger values in some KPIs, but smaller in others. This make analysis difficult, and would be better suited to a categorical column chart.
