Description Yug 2008-01-12 19:20:46 UTC
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
# Year
# Area
# 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 :
# [ Creating SVG Pie Charts through XSLT via a Web Service].
# google query [ 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.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2011-11-29 22:29:00 UTC
Removing the LATER resolution; nice SVG pie graph generation would be a nice extension. :)
Comment 3 Platonides 2011-11-29 22:36:58 UTC
Can't you do it with timeline? The underlying ploticus command is able to do pie charts.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2011-11-29 23:55:46 UTC
I don't think timeline will pass that through.
Comment 5 Nemo 2013-09-17 08:34:54 UTC
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?

(In reply to comment #5)
AFAIK, SVG-Edit is not a special chart-tool but a generic "drawing"-tool. Pie-charts could be created entirely with JavaScript using a gadget.

Just needs a community member who choses one of the various solutions, e.g., 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 ) and will support this tool for a time.
