The Polar Charts component is part of Kendo UI for jQuery, a professional grade UI library with 100+ components for building modern and feature-rich applications. To try it out sign up for a free 30-day trial.
The Kendo UI chart is a powerful data visualization component, which allows you to graphically represent your data. It is useful when you would like to utilize modern browser technologies such as SVG or Canvas (with a fallback to VML for older IE versions) for interactive data visualizations.
The component offers a variety of chart types such as area, bar, line, scatter, polar, radar, pie and donut, stock (OHLC), waterfall and other.
The Polar chart, demonstrated in this demo, shows data in a circular plot area in polar coordinates where each data point is represented by a distance/radius and an angle, beginning of the coordinate system. Polar charts are useful for visualizing scientific data like precipitation/heat distribution in the Earth's poles and other multivariate data.
To instantiate a Kendo UI chart, you need to specify an empty div with an id on the page, select this div with a jQuery selector and invoke the kendoChart() function. As a result, the chart is registered as a standard jQuery plugin.
The chart can fetch data for its series from either local or remote data source. You can find more information about the Kendo UI chart in the product documentation.
