Scatter Polar Line Chart

  • 2 minutes to read

Short Description

The Scatter Polar Line Chart is represented by the ScatterPolarLineSeriesView object, which belongs to both Polar Series Views and Point, Line and Spline Series Views. This view shows trends for multiple series and compares values that have the same point arguments on a circular diagram with angles as arguments. Series points are also displayed in the order in which they appear in the collection. In contrast, other view types sort their points by arguments, and some aggregate points with equal arguments into a single entry along the X-axis.

For example, the following image shows a Scatter Polar Line Chart that displays a graph for the Archimedean spiral.
