# Load the plotrix library
library(plotrix)
# Create a vector with the number of objects to be plotted
country <- c(1:8)
# Create a vector of country names for the labels of the vector above
country.names <- names(country) <- c( "Yemen", "Spain", "Russia", "Portugal", "Italy", "Kenya", "USA", "Iceland")
# Create a vector of the data to be plotted
country <- c(324, 234, 123, 63, 234, 423, 324, 452)
# Set the font size on the radial plot
par(ps=12)
# Create a radial plot
radial.plot(country, labels=country.names,rp.type="p",main="Radar Chart", radial.lim=c(0,500),line.col="blue")
