Wind Rose chart / Radar chart

Recommended Posts


I would like to recommend inclusion/prioritisation of the wind rose chart into your development plan. From what I can see in the documentation, it is not possible to implement this using the current radar chart - but it is close in some respects.

To see what a wind rose chart is just put "wind rose chart" into google. The typical use is to display the distribution of  wind directions during a time period.

The curent radar chart can do some of this but misses out on vital stuff vs competing charting products.

So in summary, if a radar chart is a circular multi-series line chart, then a wind rose chart could be a circular multi-series stacked column chart. (best way of describing it)

If it is possibe to achieve this using the radar chart, please let me know. [Otherwise we will have to introduce an alternative solution :( ]

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Hopefully it will make the next version - as there is likely to be an increased requirement for it among all your users during the coming months/years

Dear User,


We are delighted to announce that PowerCharts is now ready for your iPads and iPhones too. We have just released PowerCharts v3.2. Starting v3.2, PowerCharts has HighCharts embedded within it, and offers both Flash and JavaScript (HTML5) charting . The Flash charts are displayed on a majority of devices and the JavaScript charts on devices that do not support Flash, all of it without writing a line of code.


Automatic rendering of JavaScript charts on devices (like iPad and iPhone) where Flash player is not supported.


5 new chart types:


Heat Map Chart


Box and Whisker Chart


Step Line Chart


Error Line Chart


Error Scatter Chart



* Support for JSON data format.


* Support for LinkedCharts, where a single data source controls multiple charts.


* Interactive legends in charts allow selective showing/hiding of data series.


* Legends now support icons for each data series.


* Better management of labels on charts.


* Labels now have an auto rendering mode to prevent them from overlapping, the chart selects the best display mode depending on the length of the labels and the width of the chart.


* Long labels are truncated, with ellipses appended to the truncated end of each label, and a tooltip bearing the completed label text is displayed when the user hovers over a truncated label.


* Support for line breaks and wrapping in all text elements including: caption, sub caption, X-axis title, Y-axis title, Labels and tooltips.


* In Line charts, data values can now be positioned either above or below the dataplots. Automatic positioning of data values is also supported.


* In Step-line charts dataplots can be joined using vertical lines.


* Custom alignment of caption and sub caption using STYLES.


* Advanced print management using JavaScript.


* Additional options for efficient event handling using JavaScript.


* Support for dynamic update of chart properties using JavaScript(barring select scatter and drag charts).


* Charts now support % based sizes along with dynamic resizing (barring select scatter and drag charts).

Was wondering if the latest release actually supports wind-rose charts -

The chart gallery only mentions a radar (spider) chart - can this type of chart be configured in the latest release to represent a "proper" wind rose chart?

If not, any idea when a native wind-rose chart will be released?
