The spider chart (also called the radar chart, web chart, polar chart, and star plots) is named by its unique appearance. It is a chart that uses a two-dimensional graph to display a multi-dimensional data structure.
Spider graphs offer an alternative way to show relationships. Spider charts are primarily suited for showing outliers and commonality.
Spider graphs are like line graphs that have been twisted around into a circle to give a slightly different view of the data. Their use is similar in showing general relationships but not quite as efficient as line graphs themselves.
