PolarAxesOrigin

PolarAxesOrigin

is an option for sector charts and polar plots that specifies where polar axes should be drawn.

Details

  • PolarAxesOrigin->{θ,r} specifies the radial axis should be placed at angle theta, and the angular axis should be placed at radius r.
  • The angle theta is measured in radians, counterclockwise from the positive axis.
  • PolarAxesOrigin->{{pos,dir},r} specifies that the radial axis should be at position pos, and oriented in direction dir.
  • Possible values for pos are Left, Right, Top, Bottom. Possible values for dir are Up, Down, Left, Right.
  • The setting Automatic specifies an automatic choice of axes origin.
