Our customers requested a visual diagram that displays the overall ‘health’ of their whole environment over a time period. We discussed as a team and decided to create an interactive timeline. We designed an interactive timeline- representing all the events occurring in their environment over certain period of time.
I started exploring data visualization libraries including D3.js and viz.jsalong with some others and showed my team several examples to spark the ideas of what possible. I finally decided to use timeline of viz.js because it provided the planform we needed to develop. However, I knew I would have to customize the script significantly to meet our design and user experience needs.
