Visualizations Everywhere: A Multiplatform Infrastructure for Linked Visualizations

By Danyel Fisher, Steven M. Drucker and Scott Ruble

Abstract

Figure 1: The WebCharts framework accommodates multiple types of visualizations, embedded in multiple types of applications. In this figure, four different host applications (around the outside) each dynamically add any WebCharts enabled visualization available on the web (center). Abstract—In order to use new visualizations, most toolkits require application developers to rebuild their applications and distribute new versions to users. The WebCharts Framework take a different approach by hosting Javascript from within an application and providing a standard data and events interchange.. In this way, applications can be extended dynamically, with a wide variety of visualizations. We discuss the benefits of this architectural approach, contrast it to existing techniques, and give a variety of examples and extensions of the basic system. Index Terms—Visualization systems, toolkit design, data transformation and representation
