What is a radar chart?
The radar chart—also known as a Spider Chart, Web Chart, Polar Chart and Star Plots (among other names)—is used to compare one or multiple categories (e.g. competitors, products, etc.) across different variables (e.g. quality indices, performance metrics, etc.). The distance/radius of each point to the center is proportional to the maximum magnitude of the variable or its highest record.
A radar chart is ideal to reveal similarities and differences (outliers) between your categories. It’s especially effective to visualize cyclic data and the positioning of one or two categories across different the variables.
