What D3.js is Not

After exploring its API and building a rather complex chart, I come to realize that I have misunderstood D3 for a long time. It’s not only me, after talking to my friends, they also have misconceptions regarding D3. So I’ve decided to write this post to clear some of the common misunderstandings. D3 is Not a Charting Library When you go to D3 homepage, you can see lots of amazing charts and visualizations. D3 is Not a Graphics Layer D3 is not a graphics layer - in fact, most of its graphic power comes from SVG. Tributary. Sigma js. Interactive Data Visualization for the Web.

The 37 best tools for data visualization

As consumers, we're positively swimming in data; it's everywhere from labels on food packaging design to World Health Organisation reports. As a result, for the designer it's becoming increasingly difficult to present data in a way that stands out from the mass of competing data streams. One of the best ways to get your message across is to use a visualization to quickly draw attention to the key messages, and by presenting data visually it's also possible to uncover surprising patterns and observations that wouldn't be apparent from looking at stats alone.

Jambalaya: an interactive environment for exploring ontologies

Noy, M.A. Musen, Casey Best, Ray Fergersen, Neil Ernst, “Jambalaya: an interactive environment for exploring ontologies”, International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces, 2002 (Link) Abstract:This demonstration presents a visualization environment for exploring ontologies. An ontology defines a common vocabulary and structure of an information space for researchers and domain experts to exchange and share knowledge. A domain expert defines classes to represent concepts in a domain of discourse, with slots representing properties and relationships between the concepts. Freeplane/freeplane. DERI Pipes.

The 33 best tools for data visualization. Bdon's Department of Novelty ( NAViGaTOR - Network Analysis, Visualization, & Graphing TORonto. NAViGaTOR (Network Analysis, Visualization, & Graphing TORonto) is a software package for visualizing and analyzing protein-protein interaction networks.

NAViGaTOR - Network Analysis, Visualization, & Graphing TORonto

NAViGaTOR can query OPHID / I2D - online databases of interaction data - and display networks in 2D or 3D. To improve scalability and performance, NAViGaTOR combines Java with OpenGL to provide a 2D/3D visualization system on multiple hardware platforms. NAViGaTOR also provides analytical capabilities and supports standard import and export formats such as GO and the Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI). Features NAViGaTOR combines a visualization system implemented in OpenGL with a graphical user interface and analytical algorithms implemented in Java. In protein-protein interaction networks, nodes represent proteins, and edges between nodes represent physical interactions between the proteins.

Data Visualization: Modern Approaches - Smashing Magazine

There is a variety of conventional ways to visualize data – tables, histograms, pie charts and bar graphs are being used every day, in every project and on every possible occasion. Data visualization. Data visualization or data visualisation is viewed by many disciplines as a modern equivalent of visual communication.

It is not owned by any one field, but rather finds interpretation across many (e.g. it is viewed as a modern branch of descriptive statistics by some, but also as a grounded theory development tool by others). It involves the creation and study of the visual representation of data, meaning "information that has been abstracted in some schematic form, including attributes or variables for the units of information".[1]
