I've recently started playing with a very powerful Javascript library called D3.js. D3 is for visualizing data either in charts, force layout graphs, data plots or whatever you can imagine. I'm not really sure what the point of this post is as I really can't show you yet what we're using it for. But I can show some of the things that it's capable of.   Let's first look at a Force Directed Layout. These are usually used to show hierarchical data and the way D3 handles them is very cool looking. You can also include labels, pop ups, etc for the nodes on the plot. If you're really interested in this
