There are quite a few sites that describe the touch and gesture events that can be used in the mobile version of WebKit running on iPhone and iPod Touch. There is, however, not so much info with regards to Android. I've placed a few links at the bottom of this article that contain information used to compile this brief explanation. Touch events are a bit like mouse events, but there are some very important differences when it comes to touch vs. mouse: A touch is very hard to keep steady whilst a mouse can stay at a fixed position - this means that we go from a touchStart event directly to a touchMove event.

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.
