This topic describes how to create a radar chart. Make sure that you have read Dashboard overview and Basic dashboard operations. For creating a dataset, see Create a dataset.

Overview

Radar charts display numbers and ratios obtained from data analysis. You can view the changing trends of indicators by using radar charts. For example, sales of all areas are represented by numbers and ratios in radar charts.

A radar chart is based on labels and lengths. Labels are based on dimensions such as product types. Lengths are based on measures such as shipping costs.

Notes

You can select a minimum of one and a maximum of two dimensions for the labels of a radar chart. The number of dimension values must be greater than or equal to three and less than or equal to 12. You need to select a minimum of one dimension for the length.
