What is a radial bar chart?
A radial bar chart, also called circular bar chart, is a bar chart plotted in polar coordinates (instead of a Cartesian plane).
Because of its circular shape, this type of bar chart is eye-catching but is often not as easy to interpret as a regular bar chart. Because the bars are plotted on different radial points of the polar axis, they have different perimeters and cannot be compared by their lengths.
In this vizzard, we’ve included many features to help you create a compelling and easy-to-read radial bar chart. Opt to show or hide values, axes, and grids and organize the bars by their values.
