Theory and practice[edit]

Hi, I am reorganizing the categorization of diagrams, charts and graphs in the sciences categories.

Now I moved all graphs from the Category:Economics diagrams to this category, because I want to make a difference between:

  • Diagrams: like block diagrams... etc.,
  • Charts: like bar charts, pie charts... etc, and
  • Graphs.

Now I noticed that there are a lot of graphs in the field of economy. I noticed two particular types here:

  • Graphs that represent a theory
  • Graphs that show some statistical data

I wonder if we could make a difference here, for example by creating a separate Category:Economic statistical charts category. This will give an opportunity to make some further differentation here.

Maybe there is an other solution here, but something has to be done here. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 14:08, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

I suggest you go ahead and do what you feel is right. We can correct mistakes later. Such as English spelling, grammar, etc.. Category:Economic charts means the same thing, and makes more grammatical sense though than Category:Economic statistical charts. I like this:
Subcategories:
I suggest further subdividing the graphs according to theme. --Timeshifter (talk) 15:05, 16 July 2008 (UTC)
Ok. I will give it a try, and see if it works. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 19:00, 16 July 2008 (UTC)


I copied the talk item to the Category talk:Diagrams and will proceed over there. - Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 11:27, 17 July 2008 (UTC)

Names new subcategories?[edit]

I suggest making a subcategory for demand supply graphs, but what should I actually call it? Demand and supply curves, is it too long? Likewise I would like to create a subcategory for IS curves. Any suggestions, ideas, opinions? Solbris (talk) 19:12, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Here you go: Category:Supply and demand curves. Normally, in English it is called "supply and demand" and not "demand and supply." See: en:Supply and demand and this Google search:

I haven't studied IS curves. I found this: en:IS/LM model and en:Category:Economics curves. You might use them to help pick some more category names for the Commons.
Image:Islm.svg is a graph that might be categorized more specifically. It is in the en:IS/LM model article. --Timeshifter (talk) 20:32, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Merge with Economic diagrams[edit]

By view of the three categories Economic charts, Economic graphs and Economic diagrams, they mostly represent the identical idea and reflect a rather stunning triplication of material that can altogether be in one economic inphographic parent, such as Category:Economic diagrams – which can inclusively host items named "chart", "graph" and "diagram". The plentiful individual images in the three cats give the strong impression that dumping them in either of the three parents was more random than anything else and that there's nil gain in continuing this non-maintained split structure.

I would suggest commenting centrally in Category talk:Economic charts. Orrlingtalk 16:47, 27 December 2013 (UTC)
