improved source code for radar chart example in matplotlib docs

Hello dev people,

I had an app where I needed the radar chart (aka Kiviat diagrams) source code out of matplotlib. Turns out the example source code is very limited the way it is currently written. Not good.

I re-wrote parts of the source code to make it much more flexible and easier to include in an app. For example, if run in stand-alone mode, the user can specify upto 25 different radar charts in one window. Titles and labels are much more general as well. The legend can have multiple columns, etc.

If anyone is interested, I will be happy to send you my source code, hoping you might consider replacing the current version in the docs with the one I’ll send.

Just reply and I’ll send the code. You can decide from there whether to use it to replace current version.

I did not want to attach the code if no one is interested.

Hi Dan,

Is
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/api/radar_chart.html?highlight=radar
this the example you are referring to? If so, this is the one I submitted
to the gallery a couple of years ago and I would be happy to see the
underlying methodology improved.
