Description

I'm leaning towards either the Google Visualization API, which is very complete but this puts our project in a place where we are depending on external resources for such a simple function (unlike google Maps which is almost unavoidable).

There is also Chart.js which creates HTML5 canvases. Well documented, simple, but has little interactivity because it is a canvas.

And also NVD3.js, based off D3.js, which is interactive and more complex than Canvas.js and not documented as well.

History

Is d3 (as used in the dataone dashboard) not sufficient? There's been quite a bit of graphing implemented there and we should reuse as much as possible.

I've decided to go with d3.js since it is very flexible and interactive.
