    Dynamically Generated Infographics?

    Hi all,

    I've just been thinking about infographics recently, and the need for visualization of data - more and more websites are coming to use them, and i'd like to use them too.


    However, i dont really know where to start - what languages are they coded in?
    I've got some basic web experience, so i know that the actual numbers would be pulled from the database usually using MySQL - but what are they using to actually dynamically draw the infographics?


    E.g. if they've got a chart - how do they fill it up by a certain amount?

    Or what if its another less standard object - e.g. on here - http://nigmanoname.com/prodex - Once it loads, if you click a hero, its got a chart in the top left thats generated for its skill level in different aspects of the game - is there a way to do that on a webpage dynamically? - I realize that site is created in flash and its chart isnt dynamic - wondering if there is a way to make a dynamic version?

    Say you had - subjects for a pupil (so, english / maths / history / physics / chemistry / biology / computing) - could you have a chart like that generated dynamically from their "subject level" in a database?



    Sorry if all of this is confusing / sorry if its in the wrong section, i really had no idea where to post this

    But, thanks in advance!

    Regards,
    bobd0le

    Here's some basic examples:

    Basically, you'll use a server side language such as PHP to get your data out of your MySQL database and into HTML. You can then use CSS or JavaScript to build a graph based on that data.
