Tips for creating pie charts
- Do make the chart 3D. It looks nicer.
- Consider leaving text labels off the image to increase its use in multiple wikis (for example, put sections in different colours, and then in a caption/on the image description page, state what the colours stand for). Numbers are fairly neutral. See Template:Legend
- Consider if a pie chart is the best representation for your data. Pie charts are best when there is a fixed, limited amount of "stuff" to go around, such as votes (limited by the population at a specific time) or budgets. Populations can grow - would the data be more flexible if presented as a bar chart, which can grow?
- Graphs are best as SVGs, which can be easily edited by other users. PNG and GIFs are also OK but not as flexible. They should never be JPGs.
