Abstract

Charts can propagate information more effectively by visualizing various types of information. Due to this reason, many web developers often use charts when they display information on the web. However, using a chart requires a special dedicated software to install and it is difficult to share the finished charts since they are usually in raster format. The raster format images are fixed in size, therefore, experience image distortion problem when their sizes are changed. In this paper, we propose a web-based chart generating system using CML(Chart Markup Language) to solve the current compatibility and sharing problems. The proposed chart generating system first analyzes XML, Text, or HTML documents to extract chart information in the documents, and then it converts collected chart information to CML. The converted CML documents are displayed on the web browser using a vector method. The vector method has an advantage of protecting its images from distortion even when image sizes are scaled. The CML, proposed in this paper, is a chart markup language based on XML for modeling charts Information. If CML is used for presenting a chart in a web, it makes easier to share and to convert the chart information.
