PolarAxesOrigin

PolarAxesOrigin
is an option for sector charts and polar plots that specifies where polar axes should be drawn.
  • PolarAxesOrigin specifies the radial axis should be placed at angle , and the angular axis should be placed at radius r.
  • The angle is measured in radians, counterclockwise from the positive axis.
  • PolarAxesOrigin specifies that the radial axis should be at position pos, and oriented in direction dir.
  • The setting Automatic specifies an automatic choice of axes origin.
