Circumplex chart

Check out the given walk-through on how to set the Circumplex chart properties.

The Circumplex chart, also known as the Polar Area chart or Nightingale Rose chart, is a combination of the Bar chart and Pie chart. Each category may have more than one sub-category, where a section of the disc shows that each subcategory and each section have the same angle. The value of the corresponding sub-category is shown through the area. By changing the radius in a Circumplex chart, users can adjust the area of each segment (based on data).
