Spider-Webs

Generates spider-web like plot. Spider webs may look cool, but they are terrible to interpret. You should think of using a bar chart to represent the same information. You have been warned.

Usage
plotSpiderWebs(dstat, symbols = c(17, 16, 15, 4, 8), cglcol = "black",
  legend = TRUE, legend.cex = 0.7, legend.pos.x = "bottomright",
  legend.pos.y = NA, legend.horizontal = FALSE, pcol = qd.colors,
  ...)
Arguments
dstat

A data frame containing data, e.g., output from dictionaryStatistics()

symbols

Symbols to be used in the plot

cglcol

The color for the spider net

legend

Whether to print a legend

legend.cex

Scaling factor for legend

legend.pos.x

X position of legend

legend.pos.y

Y position of legend

legend.horizontal

Whether to print legend horizontally or vertically

pcol

The line color(s)

...

Miscellaneous arguments to be given for radarchart().

Value

No value is returned.

Note

radar charts and spider web plots are dangerous, they can easily become misleading. They are in this package for historic reasons, but should not be used anymore.
