Twelve JavaScript Libraries for Data Visualization

In addition to being collected, this data often must be converted into effective diagrams that highlight any and all necessary findings: a task that the JavaScript language has proven itself fully capable of completing. In turn, a much heavier focus is currently being placed on JavaScript as a data visualization tool; therefore, I compiled the following list of twelve JavaScript frameworks that can be extremely useful for data visualization. Dygraphs.js The Dygraphs.js library allows developers to create interactive charts using the X and Y axis to display powerful diagrams. The more data being parsed, the higher the functionality of the graph.

Webmaster Level: All As a webmaster, you have a unique understanding of your web pages and the content they represent.

Introducing Rich Snippets

Google helps users find your page by showing them a small sample of that content -- the "snippet. " We use a variety of techniques to create these snippets and give users relevant information about what they'll find when they click through to visit your site. Today, we're announcing Rich Snippets, a new presentation of snippets that applies Google's algorithms to highlight structured data embedded in web pages. Rich Snippets give users convenient summary information about their search results at a glance. To display Rich Snippets, Google looks for markup formats (microformats and RDFa) that you can easily add to your own web pages.

And now with microformats markup: or alternatively, use RDFa markup. To prepare your site for Rich Snippets and other benefits of structured data on the web, please see our documentation on structured data annotations. No. What's next?
