This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

D3 continues to gain traction as a library for creating rich visualisations in the browser. Previously, it was somewhat low-level, requiring more work for the creation of commonly used visualisations than less sophisticated, more targeted libraries. Since the last radar, libraries like Rickshaw for charting and Crossfilter for in-browser dataset exploration have helped make D3 even more accessible than before.

D3 is a JavaScript library for binding datasets into the DOM, and then declaratively transforming the document to create rich visualizations - ranging from graphs to heatmaps. With support for HTML, CSS and SVG, and an extensible plug-in model, we like the fact that this library allows us to deliver information in more intuitive ways.
