The following Google Charts are used by IRStats2:
- Area Charts:
- Column Charts:
- Combo Charts:
- Pie Charts:
These 4 have the same data policy (look at the bottom of each of the
All code and data are processed and rendered in the browser. No data is
sent to any server.
- Geo Charts:
That one seems a bit more tricky:
Note that the Geo map can easily be replaced by a simple table which is
rendered outside Google Charts. Anyway there's a known issue with
EPrints 3.2 and EPrints 3.3 up to 3.3.9 which prevents the Geo Map to
load successfully (clash with Prototype v1.7- fixed in 1.7.1).
The way the code generally works is this way:
- browser loads JS library from Google's servers:
- local JS code instantiates a Chart and feeds it data
- Chart renders data locally.
For info, tables and other bits of IRStats2 (exporters etc) are rendered
outside Google Charts.
I hope this will help you.
