Today, we give you our D3 Satellite Chart Library. This chart started as a part of financial data analysis project and was specifically made for presenting indicators together with their values in intuitive, interesting and readable way.
Strong point of this chart’s design is the approach to indicators. They are categorized on three levels. Each of them corresponds (stays in the orbit) to the indicator one level above. All indicators and their values are summarized and processed to provide main grade of these indicators in the center of the chart. This way it is clear which constituents influence which indicators and how strong the influence is.
When looking on the Satellite Chart from design perspective, resemblance to heavenly bodies (sun, planets and moons) becomes clear.
