Visualization: Motion Chart - Google Chart Tools Visualization: Motion Chart - Google Chart Tools Overview A dynamic chart to explore several indicators over time. The chart is rendered within the browser using Flash. Note for Developers: Because of Flash security settings, this (and all Flash-based visualizations) might not work correctly when accessed from a file location in the browser (e.g., file:///c:/webhost/myhost/myviz.html) rather than from a web server URL (e.g., http://www.myhost.com/myviz.html). This is typically a testing issue only.

20 Fresh JavaScript Data Visualization Libraries

20 Fresh JavaScript Data Visualization Libraries

There are plenty of JavaScript libraries out there for rendering your otherwise plain and boring numerical data into beautiful, interactive, and informative visualizations. The beauty of using JavaScript for data visualization is that, if created correctly, your data will be highly accessible (usually via HTML tables). A long time ago (2008), I wrote about JavaScript solutions for graphing and charting data and this article revisits the topic with twenty more JavaScript libraries that you can use to bring your data to life. 1. Highcharts Highcharts is one of the most promising JavaScript charting libraries to hit the scene recently, with its large array of features including seven charting types (line, pie, and bar among them), the ability to zoom in and out of charts, and tooltips for offering more information about data points.
