Re: how to orient Polar Plot 0 Degrees at the North Pole


PolarPlot[
 Exp[Cos[t]] - 2 Cos[4 t],
  {t, 0, 2 \[Pi]},
 PolarAxes -> True]

PolarPlot[
 Evaluate[
  (Exp[Cos[t]] - 2 Cos[4 t]) /.
   t -> t - Pi/2],
  {t, 0, 2 \[Pi]},
 PolarAxes -> True,
 PolarTicks -> {
   Table[
    {t, FunctionExpand[Mod[(t - Pi/2), 2 Pi]/Degree]},
    {t, 0, 2 Pi - Pi/12, Pi/12}],
   Automatic}]
