My project for this year's Google Sommer of Code will be to contribute new chart types for the BIRT project.

Abstract

As there were some request about new chart types for BIRT the goal of my project is to add three new chart types.

  • donut chart
  • venn diagram
  • radar diagram

Description

BIRT already provides several chart types for designing customs reports. I found some open bugs and help-wanted entries in bugzilla.

Donut chart

This chart will be implemented based on the existing pie chart.

Radar diagram

This chart shows data information grouped by categories.

Venn diagram

This chart shows similarities and differences of several datasets.

Project plan

Here you can find the timeline for this project including all milestones.
