Has any one got any examples of drawing pie charts with vectors as markers with OpenLayers?
Well, took me a couple of hours but I found one way to do it.
It requires you to use dojo.js, (which unfortunately I can't use for my project but thought I'd share for anybody else that's looking).
Basically, as I understand it, dojo adds a custom wrapper to openlayers map which allows you to add Dojo GFX Shapes and Widgets - which includes Pie Charts!

An example can be found at this website:
