Create a wind rose chart in everviz

Follow the steps in this article to create a wind rose chart in everviz.

Wind rose charts are great for seeing the wind speed towards a certain compass direction. The data can be stacked so that wind speed data taken over a protracted time period can be shown in the one chart. More than four compass points can be used, but make sure that the data file you use in everviz flows compass data clockwise from North to East and so on.

The example we’ll create lets us see stacked wind speed data from a fictional airline based at a fictional airport. It uses four compass points and plots average wind speed data from in five-knot segments.

To create a wind rose chart:

  • Launch the project wizard and select Chart to launch the chart wizard
  • Select Wind rose from the Chart type section to the left of the chart wizard’s screen. Notice that the preview pane changes to reflect the chart type you’ve chosen
  • Click Next to move to the Data step where you can enter the data for your chart
  • Click the top-left cell (A1) in the data table and press CTRL+A to select all the data in it
  • Press the delete key to remove the example data
  • Copy this example data and paste it into the data table at the top-left cell (A1). You’ll see the newly added data reflected in the preview chart
  • Click Next to move to the Design screen where you can choose a theme for your chart. Click an available theme to see how it looks, or stick with the default theme
  • Click Next to move to the Text & Annotations screen where you can add contextual information to your chart, such as a title, axis labels and a caption
  • Click Next to move to the Save or Publish screen where you can save your chart for later amendment or use, or publish your chart
  • Alternatively, you can click the Continue in Editor button to edit the chart further with more granular options
