# Kiviat Diagram with scale always aligned to first axis

I'm using Kiviat Diagram to draw graphs, sample code for same is mentioned below:

\begin{center}
\psframebox*[fillcolor=white]{
\begin{pspicture}(-6,-5)(5,5)
\psset{unit=1.2}
\psKiviat[rotate=0.5,yLabels={Skill3, Skill2, Skill1,Skill9}, labelsep=10pt]{4}{3}
\psKiviatTicklines[Dx=0.5,linecolor=black!30]{4}{3}
\psKiviatAxes[linecolor=black!30]{4}{3}
\psKiviatLine[linewidth=1pt,linecolor=black,fillstyle=solid,opacity=0.5,fillcolor=green]{\pskillc, \pskillb, \pskilla, \pskillj}
\multido{\rA=0.5+0.5,\iA=20+20}{5}{\uput(0,\rA){\iA}}
\end{pspicture}
}
\end{center}


Output with three axis: Output with Four axis: Is there any better way to represent legend scale of 20,40,60,80,100? Is it possible to align scale to first axis?

• Please provide a MWE! – Svend Tveskæg Oct 26 '13 at 13:07
• Are you sure you want to use a Kiviat diagram? They suggest that their area covered means something, but for 4+ axes the area is dependant on the order in which you put them. – Tom Bombadil Oct 26 '13 at 14:00
• Is there any good alternative to Kiviat Diagram? Number of axis for me varies from 2 to 10 [in future , it may go upto 20] – Pawan Mude Oct 26 '13 at 14:15
• Basically, you want to represent n data points. Sounds like a regular bar plot. This can be done e.g. with pgfplots and the and the symbolic x coords option. – Tom Bombadil Oct 26 '13 at 17:01

While true Kiviat diagrams attribute meaning to the area enclosed, I've seen them used for many numbers of axes. So, appropriateness comments notwithstanding, here are a couple of possible solutions:

## Using pstricks-add:

\documentclass{standalone}

\begin{document}
\begin{pspicture}(-6,-5)(5,5)
\psset{unit=1.2}
\psKiviat[rotate=0.5,yLabels={Skill3, Skill2, Skill1,Skill9}, labelsep=10pt]{4}{3}
\psKiviatTicklines[Dx=0.5,linecolor=black!30]{4}{3}
\psKiviatAxes[linecolor=black!30]{4}{3}
\psKiviatLine[linewidth=1pt,linecolor=black,fillstyle=solid,opacity=0.5,fillcolor=green]{1,0.5,2.5,2.5}
\multido{\rA=0.355+0.355,\iA=20+20}{5}{\uput[-110](\rA,\rA){\iA}}
\end{pspicture}
\end{document} ## Using tkz-kiviat:

\documentclass{standalone}
\usepackage{tkz-kiviat}
\usetikzlibrary{arrows}

\begin{document}
\begin{tikzpicture}[rotate=45]
\tkzKiviatDiagram[
gap=1,
lattice=5,
label space=1
]{Skill3,Skill2,Skill1,Skill9}
\tkzKiviatLine[
thick,
color=black,
mark=*,
mark options={black,thin},
fill=green!60,
opacity=.5
](2,1,5,5)
