The other JIT: JavaScript Information Visualization Toolkit

Category: JavaScript

Nicolas Garcia Belmonte has written a different JIT, the JavaScript Information Visualization Toolkit.

The JIT is an advanced JavaScript infovis toolkit based on 5 papers about different information visualization techniques.

The JIT implements advanced features of information visualization like Treemaps (with the slice and dice and squarified methods), an adapted visualization of trees based on the Spacetree, a focus+context technique to plot Hyperbolic Trees, and a radial layout of trees with advanced animations (RGraph).

There are some cool examples such as the treemap visualization of his top 50 albums, or the network of pearl jam’s related artists, and finally the spacetree algorithm at work.

Excellent job – I especially like the space tree, very nicely done

So pretty! And potentially very useful for exploring large datasets too.

I came across JIT the other day and it took no time at all really to put a couple of delicious bookmark visualisations together, using Yahoo pipes to slightly preprocess the delicious stuff and prove that integration.
