The graphic Labs, who frequently produce pie charts to illustrate articles, want to set up (SVG) pie chart's standards.
But, if a pie chart are made handily, we cannot guarantee its accuracy.
Also, graphists are from one hour ago looking for a Web Service allowing to create SVG pie charts, or even better : under free licence.
But the must should be to have page, on katetools website, allowing us to input the data needs :
# Wished image's name
# Total number of seats ? = 100%
# ? seats for group 1 = ??% = color ?
# ? seats for group 2 = ??% = color ?
# ? seats for group 3 = ??% = color ?
# ? seats for group 4 = ??% = color ?
# ? seats for group 5 = ??% = color ?
And which may output a nice + accurate PNG or SVG circle pie chart with '''Wikipedia chosen conventions'''.
You can have a look at :
# [http://www.svgopen.org/2003/papers/CreatingSVGPieChartsThroughWebService/index.html Creating SVG Pie Charts through XSLT via a Web Service].
# google query [http://www.google.com.tw/search?q=pie+chart+svg Pie+Chart+SVG]
I come first to ask you : is this tool already existing ?
If not, I think this tools is really need to provide harmonized pie charts and to upgrade a little more the graphic level of Wikipedia page.
If the creation of this extension is accepted, I can provide some ideas to find ugly but workable solution (I have really basic knowledge in coding and SVG).
User:Slashme (wikigraphist AND programmer) is working on it.
Removing the LATER resolution; nice SVG pie graph generation would be a nice extension. :)
Can't you do it with timeline? The underlying ploticus command is able to do pie charts.
I don't think timeline will pass that through.
It's not clear to me: would SVGEdit (bug 38271) be enough for this bug to be solved, is it headed in the same direction? Or are the two things unrelated?

Just needs a community member who choses one of the various solutions, e.g. http://elycharts.com/examples, writes an editing-UI (if at all required since users are now supposed to understand JSON c.f. TemplateData and Upload Campaigns) and finally takes one of the existing upload-approaches like https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Rillke/MwJSBot.js ) and will support this tool for a time.
Graph extension might be applicable. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Graph and samples at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Graph/Demo
