The "Skylands" category now works, it is a graph of popularity by skyland. Kathryn has kindly provided me with access to the vapor trail data. I take the map of the skylands and create a Voronoi diagram from it, and graph the count of aviators in each voronoi cell over time.

Speaking of access to data, the site now relies on gathering raw data from the server before displaying the graphs. For the technically minded out there, you can access this raw data directly:

http://skycharts.beyondludus.com/available_graphs.json
http://skycharts.beyondludus.com/valkyr ... s/720.json (the 720 indicates a month's worth of data)

Enjoy! :greenflag:

This solves my problem satisfactorily.

(Really? The most popular craft is the 'Cuda? This suggests that (a) there's a huge barely-tapped demand for airships, or (b) people are having a hard time switching off it.)

Bug: When moving directly from one line to another (rather than across whitespace), the detail popup doesn't update until the time changes, even though the datapoint icon does update. This gives incorrect detail popups.

I think a legend, or at least a linked help page, with an explanation of what mean, median, min, and max represent would be helpful.

About the different stat types...

The way I gather the data from Dynarank is as follows. I take these statistics for every player down to 10 hours flight time. I ignore the player the stat came from and drop it into two buckets, that player's faction and that player's plane type. So for each bucket, I have a collection of data for each stat, and I sort it by descending value of the stat.

Total represents each entry added together.
Mean represents the average of all entries.
Max is the point at the top of all entries.
Median is the point (player) in the middle of all entries.
Min is the point at the bottom of all entries.

There are some special cases. Player count only has a "total" (I tried to indicate this by disabling the type selector)... "Trade profit percentage" is based on two stats put together: "highest profit" divided by "revenue." Therefore the "total" and "mean" graphs should be the same, although based on different data, and the median/min/max will be weird because it won't be calculated necessarily for the same player.

Thanks for the report, I am not sure I can fix that but I will try.

Is there a link to the actual charts page on this post that I'm missing?

I edited the original post to have the link up at the top. It's the same url as the old version though.

I just pushed a bunch of fixes:

- There is now an "About" page
- I am also now linking to the Vapour Trails project
- Should now work in Chrome, Safari, Firefox and IE. If you are using IE I strongly advise you to stop :)
- Skyland popularity now works, just select the "Skylands" category. It looks pretty wild.
- Fix for Eskay's hover issue
- Various visual fixes

Bug: According to the charts there are no Kingfishers in the sky, however there should be ~30. I believe this to be a spelling error, your chart lists 'Kingfisher' but dynaRank uses 'KingFisher'. Same thing for 'BullFrog'.

- Fixed a javascript bug that caused it to not work in some browsers (Thanks Vera)
- Fixed Pie Charts, they now display a chart of the latest data rather than the oldest..... oops

http://skycharts.beyondludus.com/ doesn't seem to return any charts.
Am I missing something?
