Maybe you could specify at what stage of the process of recreating the image you run into trouble? If the question is just "Can someone recreate this picture for me?", it would have to be closed as being "too localized", because it would be unlikely to be of interest to anyone else. –  Jake Jun 15 '11 at 11:36
I agree with Jake, there is no difficulties in this picture. You have just to learn something about coordinates and to uderstand something like \draw[fill=blue] (0,0)--++(3,-0.5)--++(-0.5,5)--++(-3,0)--cycle; –  Alain Matthes Jun 15 '11 at 11:44
You should start by learning the elements of TikZ and after that, if you still have problems, post a question on the stage you are stuck on. –  N.N. Jun 15 '11 at 11:49
hi thanks for the remarks. i do understand. it is too much to ask for. but the problem is this i do not know much about latex or TikZ. sorry for this. –  Mia Jun 15 '11 at 12:30
Just to let you know I traced you diagram in Inkscape very easily (took 5 mins) and adding the text wouldn't take much longer. Good luck. –  Frank_Zafka Jun 16 '11 at 9:37

You really should try and have a go at producing code, rather than requesting graphics from scratch.

That diagram is easily produced in Inkscape and then use inkscape2tikz to get TikZ code. This can help with learning TikZ. Or just output as a pdf from Inkscape.

I think this should be a comment to the question, rather than an answer. –  Jake Jun 15 '11 at 12:02
I don't know Inkscape but I doubt that the code is recommendable for learning. I think it's better to learn something about node, coordinates, relative coordinate and how to draw, to fill etc... and then to post a specific question about a real problem –  Alain Matthes Jun 15 '11 at 12:02
I am happy for the question to be deleted. Just offering my perspective. I have used that script extensively to help me construct TikZ diagrams in my thesis. Each to their own though. –  Frank_Zafka Jun 15 '11 at 12:04
