How do I display my data in a 360° format and show two different data sets on the same display? 


The LabVIEW knob, dial, and gauge control or indicator is able to enter or display numeric data in a rotary action/360° format. You can find them by right clicking on the front panel and selecting the Numeric palette.  

If you want to display two different data sets on the same control or indicator, right click on the control or indicator and select Add Needle. Notice the corresponding control or indicator terminal on the block diagram is now a cluster that has one element designated to each needle.
