x=rcos(x)sin(y)

y=rsin(x)sin(y)

z=rcos(y)

but can't see how to compute r as I do not know to visualise it graphically as was possible in R^3, any help would be greatly appreciated

That doesn't look like stereographic projection to me...do you mean spherical?

I am computing a stereographic projection in R^4 and i think i am correct in setting

x=rcos(x)sin(y)

y=rsin(x)sin(y)

z=rcos(y)

but can't see how to compute r as I do not know to visualize it graphically as was possible in R^3, any help would be greatly appreciated

Stereographic projection is the same in all dimensions. Draw straight lines from the north pole through the points of the sphere and calculate the intersection of these lines with the hyperplane that is perpendicular to the direction of the north pole. You do not need polar coordinates for this.
