Run Script only if a div is in the viewport

I need to run a script only if it is in the viewport.  The following runs it to early cause the divs I need to see are still below the fold so the animation plays before you can see it.  How do I fire a script only if the div is in the viewport?
 $ =  jQuery
            $(window).on('scroll', function(){

                  if($('.imgs').hasClass('animated-in')){

                    $('#paichart1').pieChart({
                        barColor: '#ED1C23',
                        trackColor: '#DFE0E0',
                        lineCap: 'butt',
                        lineWidth: 20,
                        onStep: function (from, to, percent) {
                            $(this.element).find('.pie-value').text(Math.round(percent) + '%');
                        }
                    });

                    $('#paichart2').pieChart({
                        barColor: '#ED1C23',
                        trackColor: '#DFE0E0',
                        lineCap: 'butt',
                        lineWidth: 20,
                        onStep: function (from, to, percent) {
                            $(this.element).find('.pie-value').text(Math.round(percent) + '%');
                        }
                    });
                    
                    $('.imgs').removeClass('animated-in animated hidde_data');
                }
            })

Is that script the plugin?  If so Can I place it directly on the page or do I need to include it?

Best is to download it and include it so in your page

A simple implementation - activates animation once after target element scrolls into view
<script>
var done = false;
$(function() {
	$(window).scroll(function() {
		if (done) return;
		t = $('.target');
		offset = t.offset();
		st = $(window).scrollTop();
		wh = $(window).height();
		if (st > offset.top - wh + t.height()) {
			doAnimate();
			done = true;
		}
	});
});
</script>
