Hello,



I need to create a radar type graph like the one below using SSRS. This shows individual risks plotted in the category they belong to. The height or distance from the outside of the graph is from the risks score (a number).

Is it possible to do something like this in SSRS, so far I have only managed to plot how many risks are in a category (see second image) which is not sufficient.

Couple of quick thoughts for you:

1) Not sure a radar plot is possible in SSRS -- (Don't see it as an option in SSRS 2005, at the very least)

2) If you're plotting individual risk scores, a scatter plot would be sufficient I would imagine.

3) Radar graphs are usually a poor method for visualizing data -- see the links below for various explanations:
