Spider Chart Mod for Spotfire® 1.0.0 (Spotfire 11.0+)

1 Screenshot


Compare multiple categories of values over common variables.



The spider chart mod enables the visualization of multivariate data in the form of a two-dimensional chart with an arbitrary number of quantitative variables represented on axes starting from the same point. It is useful to compare multiple categories or groups of values over common variables in a single diagram to reveal distinct correlations, trade-offs, and a multitude of other comparative measures.

Spider charts (also called radar charts, web charts, start chart, star plot, cobweb charts) have many use cases in different sectors like marketing, analysis, sales, research, education, and more.

Data Requirement

To make the spider chart mod work properly, the underlying data must be formatted in a certain way. A data table with at least four columns is required. One column should contain groups or categories, for example, names of people or objects. Others columns should contain the contribution for each point, one column per series to be plotted.

For detailed information on data requirements, the available settings, and an example of how to set up the visualization, read the mod's community article..
