Radar Chart

Radar chart, also known as a Polar, Spider, or Web chart, is mainly used to compare the performance of multiple items (values columns) in different areas (category column). The category values are depicted as “poles” of the chart, while the aggregate of the value column in each category is depicted as a point on the pole. In most cases the points are connected with a line to create a polygon.


Creating a Radar Chart

To create a Radar Chart, add one column to the Category shelf and any number of columns to the Values shelf. The columns may be of any data type, including buckets and formulas. Each Category value is represented using one pole radiating from the center of the chart.

Styling The Radar Chart

In the Configuration Panel on the right of the Chart Builder, you can style different aspects of your chart.


The General section is available for all chart types, and the options vary depending on the chart selected. For more information on the options, see General Chart Settings.


The Styles section enables you to control various visual elements of the charts, such as colors, labels, and more. It is available for most chart types, and the options vary depending on the chart selected. For a glossary of all styles, see Styles. Style options specific to this chart are listed below.

  • Theme. Set one of the predetermined themes to customize the look of your charts. For more information, see Setting Chart Colors and Themes.
  • Type. Select the shape for the chart.
    • None. Displays only the data points.
    • Line. Displays lines connecting the data points.
    • Area. Displays the lines with shading in the area within the lines. Displays the Opacity field, enabling you to set a percentage (10-100%).

  • Min Range. Set the minimum value for the axis.
  • Max Range. Set the maximum value for the axis.
  • Steps. Set an appropriate number of steps to maximize the readability of the chart. Depending on how wide the axis range is, the default configuration could display a high number of intervals, making it hard to read or analyze the chart. Steps are set to Auto by default, enabling the chart to calculate the appropriate intervals based on the axis scale range and the dataset values.
