Multiple Area Charts with D3.js

The D3.js website describes itself as “a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data.” It is but one of many in the ever growing list of visual data JavaScript libraries. D3 was created by Mike Bostock who was the lead developer on Protovis, which D3.js builds on.

The reason I focus on D3 is because it is one of the most robust frameworks available, while also remaining flexible and web standard agnostic. It’s ability to work in SVG, Canvas, or HTML (by taking data and generating HTML tables), allows you to decide what method the data should be presented in.
