High Performance Data Visualizations in JavaScript

A session at FOSS4G North America 2013

Wednesday 22nd May, 2013

11:30am to 12:00pm (CST)

If you thought that building rich, interactive and mobile-friendly visualizations of high volume data with 100,000+ points just using the power of browser-side JavaScript was impossible, this talk will prove you wrong. We’ll review every important aspect of achieving peak performance and responsiveness for these types of applications; including real-time data simplification, computational geometry, clustering algorithms, tree structures, fast collision detection, typed arrays, UTFGrid, TopoJSON, Web Workers, CSS Transform Transitions, requestAnimationFrame and mixing Canvas with SVG and HTML.
