Command: | Graphs Polar plot |

## Description

A polar plot is the plot of data expressed in polar coordinates, with radius *r* as a function of angle *θ*.

The radius *r* is the distance from the central point and *θ* is the angle from the x-axis:

## The Polar plot dialog box

**Radius**: a variable containing the Radius data**Angle**: a variable containing the Angle data**Filter**: an optional filter to include a subset of data in the plot**Options****Angle unit**: select whether the values for Angle are expressed in Radians (1 circle = 2 PI) or Degrees (1 circle = 360°), or are Percentages (1 circle = 100).**Rotation**: the plot can be rotated clockwise of counterclockwise**Zero angle**: the angle origin can be North, East, South or West.**Connect points**: an option to connect consecutive points in the plot.
