This section describes how to create a radar chart. For more information, see Dashboard overview and Basic dashboard operations. If you need to edit or create datasets, see Create a dataset.

Radar charts can be used to compare multiple variables under different metrics. You can easily understand the distribution of metrics across different variables. For example, you can use a radar chart to compare sales across multiple areas.

A radar chart consists of a sequence of radius labels with varying radius. Radius labels are determined by data dimensions, such as product type. Radius are determined by data measures, such as transportation cost.

Note

For each radar chart, one or two dimensions can be specified to determine radius labels. The specified dimensions must contain 3 to 12 variables. At least one measure must be specified to determine Radius.

The following scenario uses the company_sales_record dataset as an example.

Scenario: Compare the order quantities and order amounts across areas

  1. Log on to the Quick BI console.
  2. Click Datasets to open the dataset management page.
  3. Select the company_sales_record dataset and click Create Dashboard.
  4. Click the Radar icon and the corresponding legend is displayed.
  5. Click the Data tab to select data dimensions and data measures.
    In the Dimensions list, select area and add it to radius label. In the Measures list, select order_number and order_amt, and add them sequentially to radius, as shown in the following figure:
    Note Make sure you have changed the data type of Area from String to Location.


  6. Click Update to generate the chart.
  7. In the Style tab, you can change the title, layout, and legend of the chart as follows:
  8. Click the Save icon to save the dashboard.

To delete the chart, move the mouse to the upper-right corner and click Delete in the toolbar that appears.
