Papyrus is a 2D C++ scenegraph (canvas) library that utilizes the cairo library to perform drawing operations. Similar canvas libraries are the Gnome Canvas, Diacanvas, and the QT Canvas. Numerous canvas primitives are available, including arcs, rectangles, polylines, and line markers. An optional companion library, Papyrusmm, provides a set of Gtkmm widgets which includes viewports (a canvas display widget similar to Gtk::DrawingArea) and other UI widgets related to drawing interfaces.
wxFreeChart is powerful charting library based on wxWidgets. It is designed with flexibility in mind, and supports many types of charts with many different configurations. These include line/histogram charts base on x/y coordinates, bar charts (vertical or horizontal), stacked bar charts, layered bar charts, OHLC financial charts (bars or candlesticks), pie charts, bubble charts, and Gantt charts.
aicwl is an Ada library that is intended for designing high-quality industrial control widgets for Ada applications. The widgets are composed of transparent layers drawn by cairo. The widgets are fully scalable graphics. A time controlled refresh policy is supported for real-time and heavy-duty applications. The library supports caching graphical operations and stream I/O for serialization and deserialization. Ready-to-use gauge and meter widgets are provided as samples as well as an editor widget for WYSIWYG design of complex dashboards. The software is based on GtkAda and cairoada, the Ada bindings to GTK+ and cairo.
JHeatChart is a one class Java API for generating heat map charts that was created because very few charting APIs seem to contain the facility to create heat maps. It is not a full featured charting API and cannot be used to other charts. The generated charts are created as Java Image objects, which can be incorporated into a GUI or saved to a file.
