Abstract
—
Presentation data with column graph and line graph isa well-known technique used in data explanation to compare andshow
direction that users can easily understand. However, thetechniques has limitations on the data describing complex withmultiple relations, that is, if the data contains diverserelationships and many variables, the efficiency of thepresentation will decrease. In this paper, the mathematicalmethod for multi relations based on Radar graph is proposed.The position of information approaches on the correlation planereferred to the distribution of content and the deep specificcontent. However, the proposed method analyzes the multivariants data by plotting in the correlation plane, and comparedwith the base line system. The result shows that the performanceis higher than other methods in term of accuracy, time andfeatures.

NTRODUCTION
In statistics, bar graph and line graph are common types of graphs employed to explain data analyses, to comparedirections and to represent a set of qualitative data withcorrelation between two variables [1]. Nonetheless,comparative analyses of more than two qualitative variablesand multiple correlations have been increasingly implementedin many fields of work, namely weather conditions, contextconsistency of documents, etc. It is important to have a properform of data presentation that can effectively send messagesacross to readers. One of the commonly used forms of datapresentation is a radar chart that can represent data withcorrelation of over two variables in an effective manner due toits continuity and its ability to clearly compare many aspectsof data plot correlations [2]. However, there are a number of limitations in presenting a larger amount of data with multiplecorrelations. Representatives of those relations need to besought so as to determine appropriate data positions.Generally, there are three methods of selectingrepresentatives of data values with correlation of multiplevariables. The three methods are as follows:
1)
Selecting the highest value
: classifying quantitative dataof each variable, and then selecting the most quantitiesvariables, for instance, in order to classify books categories[3], librarians will normally do on the essence of the books.Disadvantage of this method is other contents relating to othertopics are decreased in the importance and deleted.
2)
Selecting from the mean
: By this method a value datarepresentative from the mean or neutral value calculating froman outcome of added data divided by data amount. Thismethod is usually employed in research to selecting variablesrepresentatives. However, it is not suitable for selecting datawith multiple correlations because accurate data cannot beidentified clearly.
3) Calculating combined results of directions
: this is ahighly successful technique commonly used with data withmultiple variables [4], [5], [6]. A mathematic process isemployed to acquire relation between rectangular and polar
coordinates on a radar chart and proper coordinates’ positions
resulted from calculations of directions and distances of thoserelations. The authors name these plots
data correlation plots
.They are on correlation plane of connected lines and willconfine the area, create an
n
axis and divide the plane withinpolar coordinates. The plane in this research is referred to as
the correlation plane
. The intersection of
n
axis is called theorigin. Intersection of
n
axes will divide the plane into
n
parts.Each part is called a
correlation boundary
, details of whichare elaborated in Section 3.Hence, the authors have developed a concept of applyingthe method of calculating combined results of directions topresent results in the correlation form as above mentioneddefinition. Furthermore, efficiency of presentation of implementing methods, directions and depth levels of thecorrelation to data with multiple variables was analyzed.The rest of this paper is organized as follows: In thesection 2 we provide a review of related works about stargraph, polar coordinates, distance between plots, Deweydecimal classification and Dewey decimal classification
