InstructionsStep 1. Open or create a new ad hoc view (refer to Creating Ad Hoc Views article for further information.) Step 2. Click on the Select Visualisation Type icon in the top menu The Select Visualisation Type window is displayed Step 3. Select Line and Area from the Chart Types list There are two Spider charts available:
- Spider Line
- Spider Area
Tip: All charts must have at least one measure.With a single measure and no fields, the chart displays the total for the measure. Step 6. Click and Drag a field to the rows area e.g. Primary Address City. This allows the measure data to be broken up by the field information. You’ll notice when the field is added that the chart may not change. In the right hand side pane there is a section called Data Level. The slider allows you to quickly change the level at which the data is reported. When the slider is all the way to the left, it shows the measure total. Step 7. Slide the slider all the way to the right.
Tip: If you hover your mouse over the left and right ends of the slider the data level options will be displayed. Sometimes there are multiple options along the length of the slider.The measure is now broken up by the added field. Step 7. To break the measure further, all a field to the columns section. e.g. Gender Again, the chart does not change as the slider begins at the totals (far left) end. Step 8. Slide the columns slider to the right. Note – to make the chart clearer, we have added a filter to only show a subset of data. For more information on Filters, refer to the Ad Hoc View – Filters article for further information. The measures are now split by the additional column field (Gender) but grouped by the row field (Primary address city). If you add additional fields to the rows or columns, the sliders will update and the measures will be split if you move the sliders. You may find that the chart becomes less useful if you add too many fields.
