Radar chart

Compare entites across multiple metrics with radar/spider charts, star charts and radial bar charts

Updated 3 months ago to v1.3.0 by Flourish team

How to use this template

Radar chart

Radar or spider charts are widely used for visualising the attributes of people, places and other entities.

Getting started

  • Upload data with (at a minimum) one text column of names and three or more numeric columns of values. Note that the column chosen should be comparable, e.g. percentages or scores out of ten.

  • Optionally point to a column to filter by. This will create a dropdown, button group or slider for the end viewer.

  • Optionally set one or more columns for “Grid of charts (facets)" to create a menu from which the end viewer can group the radars onto different mini axes.

Tips

  • To make a radial bar chart, choose the "Star" mode, set the inner radius to 0 and choose a wide stroke width.

  • You can add radial labels around the edge of the chart to group the metrics into broader categories. To do this, look for the ”Outer Labels” setting under “Radial axis”.

This section documents API usage specific to this template, so for an introduction we suggest you refer to the generic API documentation instead.

version: 1

Template data

There are two different formats in which you can supply data to this template. Which one will be more convenient for you likely depends on the source of your data, as described below.

Array of objects with arbitrary keys, and a bindings object

This format is most likely useful when you have data from an external source, such as CSV data loaded from d3-dsv. You should supply this attached to the opts.data, which might look like:

    {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }

... but with the keys being the column headers from your source data instead. To tell the API how these values from each column should be associated with the keys that the template is expecting, you must also supply an object attached to opts.bindings. (The meanings of the keys in the bindings object are documented below.) The minimal bindings you can supply for this template are as shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/radar",
    version: "1",
    bindings: {
        data: {
            name: "DataHeader1"
        }
    },
    data: {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

All possible bindings that you can supply are shown in this example:

{
    template: "@flourish/radar",
    version: "1",
    bindings: {
        data: {
            name: "DataHeader1",
            values: ["DataHeader2", "DataHeader3", ...],
            filter: "DataHeader4",
            color_category: "DataHeader5",
            facet: ["DataHeader6", "DataHeader7", ...],
            metadata: ["DataHeader8", "DataHeader9", ...]
        }
    },
    data: {
        data: [
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            { "DataHeader1": ..., "DataHeader2": ..., ... },
            ...
        ]
    }
}

(As before, the keys containing "Header" would be replaced by column names from your data source.)

Array of objects with template-defined keys

There is an alternative format you can use, which is likely to be easier to use if your data is not from a spreadsheet source. With this alternative format you supply your data to the template as an array of objects, attached to opts.data, where the keys must be those used by the template, as documented below. In this case there is no need to supply a bindings object, since the key names are already those expected by the template. The required properties in the data object are as follows (scroll down for a description of what each property is):

{
template: "@flourish/radar",
version: "1",
data: {
    data: [
        {
            name: ...,
            values: [...],
            facet: [...],
            metadata: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

And the full list of all possible properties is as follows:

{
template: "@flourish/radar",
version: "1",
data: {
    data: [
        {
            name: ...,
            values: [...],
            filter: ...,
            color_category: ...,
            facet: [...],
            metadata: [...]
        },
        ...
    ]
},
...
}

Meanings of the template data keys:

  • data.name: A text column containing a name for each radar
  • data.values: Select three or more numerical columns
  • data.filter: If set, creates a filter menu or time slider
  • data.color_category: Add a category to color by. If empty, the "name" column will be used for colors.
  • data.facet: Create one column for each grouping you want to allow
  • data.metadata: Add any columns here containing extra content to show in the popups
