D3 Dynamic Charts Component

D3 helps bring data to life and provides a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data.  This component plug-in uses D3 to provide support for the following chart types:

  • Word Cloud
    • A data visualization to highlight important points from text-based raw data. The more a specific word appears in a source of textual data, the bigger and bolder it appears in the chart.
    • Analyzing customer feedback will help understand what customers are feeling about your business. Points (such as “service” “price” or “convenience”) are very easy to identify with text clouds.
  • Sun Burst
    • A visualization format that is also known as a multi-level pie chart or a radial treemap where each ring shows hierarchy with the center being the root or top node. And rings can be sliced for each category.
    • The ability to click and focus on one item at run-time and drill down into its details helps with data analysis.
  • Funnel Chart
    • Used to visualize the progressive reduction of data as it passes from one phase to another. It can be used to represent stages in a process or procedure.
    • Analyze the success of a promotional campaign, order fulfillment cycles or a recruitment process.
  • Bubble Chart
    • A variation of a scatter chart in which the data points are replaced with bubbles, and an additional dimension of the data is represented in the size of the bubbles.
    • Can be used to analyze investments and potentially which ones need more money and which ones should be further diversified.

This component plug-in also offers the following features:

  • Design-time convenience
  • Data is secure as the charts are generated offline
  • Interactive and responsive behavior
  • Retrieves data on click
