Parallel coordinates is a very important visualization method, but the dimensions it can express are limited by the length or width of the screen. In this paper, we present the polar parallel coordinates method. First, we define the polar parallel coordinates as the coordinate whose axes exist between the same degree and show the expression of the axis. We give the algorithms for the polar parallel coordinates generation and data shown in the polar parallel coordinates. Then we point out two feathers of the polar parallel coordinates. It can express more axes than parallel coordinates and reflect the characteristics of time-series data. Based on this, we compare the parallel coordinates with the polar parallel coordinates by the time-series data visualization.
