A radar plot is also known as a spider plot or a star plot. It is used to display multivariate data as a two-dimensional visualization of quantitative features that are represented on axes coming from the centre. In this article, I’ll walk you through how to visualize a radar plot using Python.

## What is a Radar Plot?

Radar charts are used to make comparisons between different observations. For example, if you want to compare the cost of producing, selling, and promoting a product, you can use a radar chart. The purpose of viewing data in a radar plot is to analyze a graph of values over multiple features.

To create a Radar plot, we need to give an axis to each feature in a way that all the axis are present radically around the centre. Then we plot the data on each axis like a scatter plot but the points of the plot connect in a way that creates a polygon. In the section below, I will take you through a tutorial on how to visualize a radar plot using Python.

Hope you now understand what radar plots are and why we need to use them. In short, they are used to visualize multivariate data as a two-dimensional graph of quantitative characteristics. Now let’s see how to visualize a radar plot with Python. For this task, I’ll be using the plotly library in Python which is used to create interactive visualizations:

### Summary

So this is how we can visualize a Radar graph with the Python programming language by using the plotly library in Python. This graph is used for drawing comparisons between multiple observations.
