Not on the current edition
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 Radar Understand more

Adopt ? We feel strongly that the industry should be adopting these items. We use them when appropriate on our projects.
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.

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
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.
