This topic describes the overview, examples, and deletion of a radar chart.

Make sure that you have read Dashboard overview and Dashboard basic operations before reading this topic. For more information about how to create a dataset, see Create a dataset.


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.


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.



The following example uses the company_sales_record dataset.

  1. Log on to the Quick BI console.
  2. Click Datasets to go to the Datasets page.
  3. Select the company_sales_record dataset and click the Create Dashboard icon in the Actions column.
    Note If you use Quick BI Enterprise Standard, you need to select Standard or Full Screen as the dashboard display mode. The following example uses Standard.
  4. Click the Radar Chart icon and an empty chart appears on the dashboard.
  5. On the Data tab page, select dimensions and measures.
    In the Dimensions list, locate the area field and add it to Labels (Dimensions). In the Measures list, locate the order_number and order_amt fields and add them sequentially to Length (Measures).
    Note Make sure that you have converted the dimension type of the area field from String to Geo.

  6. Click Update and the chart is updated.
  7. On the Style tab page, you can configure the title name, layout, and legend.

  8. Click Save to save the dashboard.

  • In the Layout section, you can configure the legend position and whether to show tooltips, areas, and labels.
  • In the Series Settings section, you can configure aliases for dimensions, data formats, and numbers of decimal places. This example uses red as the line color for the order_number field.
