An alternative Technology Radar inspired by the ThoughtWorks Technology Radar.

This Technology Radar has pretty simple functionality, uses json data source and renders SVG within html.

The data currently is provided in a radial format. I chose this and SVG, for the scalable properties. In practice, a table based structure, that automatically lays out the points could be more useful.

e.g.

{name: 'Cool Tech', r: 50, t: 30}

Appears in the Top Right Quadrant, in the inner most "Adopt" Sector.

e.g.

{name: 'Bright Shiny Toy 5', r: 390, t: 30}

Appears in the Top Right Quadrant, in the outer most "Hold" Sector.

Where r = radius, and t = theta; the degrees in radians. with 0/360 degrees being the typical right hand x line rotating in an anti-clockwise direction.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_coordinates for more details.
