GD::Graph3D - Create 3D Graphs with GD and GD::Graph
use GD::Graph::moduleName; @data = ( ["Sun", "Mon", "Tue", "Wed", "Thu", "Fri", "Sat"], [ 1203, 3500, 3973, 2859, 3012, 3423, 1230] ); $graph->set( x_label => 'Day of the week', y_label => 'Number of hits', title => 'Daily Summary of Web Site', ); $graph = GD::Graph::moduleName->new( 400, 300 ); my $gd = $graph->plot( \@data );
Where moduleName is one of bars3d, lines3d or pie3d.
This is the GDGraph3d extensions module. It provides 3D graphs for the GD::Graph module by Martien Verbruggen, which in turn generates graph using Lincoln Stein's GD.pm.
You use these modules just as you would any of the GD::Graph modules, except that they generate 3d-looking graphs. Each graph type is described below with only the options that are unique to the 3d version. The modules are based on their 2d versions (e.g. GD::Graph::bars3d works like GD::Graph::bars), and support all the options in those. Make sure to read the documentation on GD::Graph.
This is merely a wrapper around GD::Graph::pie for consistency. It also sets 3d pie mode by default (which GD::Graph does as of version 1.22). All options are exactly as in GD::Graph::pie.
This works like GD::Graph::bars, but draws 3d bars. The following settings are new or changed in GD::Graph::bars3d.
Sets the z-direction depth of the bars. This defaults to 10. If you have a large number of bars or a small chart width, you may want to change this. A visually good value for this is approximately width_of_chart / number_of_bars.
In GD::Graph::bars, multiple series of bars are normally drawn side-by-side. You can set overwrite to 1 to tell it to draw each series behind the previous one. By setting overwrite to 2 you can have them drawn on top of each other, that is the series are stacked.
This works like GD::Graph::lines, but draws 3d line. The following settings are new or changed in GD::Graph::line3d.
Sets the z-direction depth of the lines. This defaults to 10. If you have a large number of bars or a small chart width, you may want to change this. A visually good value for this is approximately width_of_chart / number_of_bars.
0.40 (April 18, 2000)
You will need to have the GD::Graph version 1.30 or later installed. You should also have Perl version 5.005 or 5.6 installed.
To install, just do the normal:
perl Makefile.PL make make install
The documentation is in GD::Graph::Graph3d.pod.
