Plot a wind rose as a scatter plot with 2 or 3 variables to optimize the quantity of information that can be obtained on a single figure.
These 2 possibilities are here highlighted by examples:
- a wind rose with 3 variables, i.e. for example the wind direction, the wind speed and the turbulence intensity.
- a wind rose with 2 variables and multiple sensors.
The point is to plot a wind rose that shows complementary information to the one obtained with the classical wind roses.
Possible applications: Wind load on structures
Example of real wind data plotted with this wind rose are visible in [1,2]

thanks ,i know ,you should let the larger sensors in the front.
