I’m starting to play with http://d3js.org/ as it appears to be the way of the future for data visualizations.
I’ve set out to create an app that serves and displays images that are in a chronological order in some kind of time-series/timeline, almost a filmstrip like way. I’ve come across some great examples of a few d3 charts, including the convention of a “lane” chart which is perfect for any kind of multi-series setup which I may have.
Between the above you get an interesting mix of different axes, interaction between charts, laying out different types of data, and selection methods.
If I finish what I’m doing and make it presentable, I’ll certainly share.
