Protovis - Visualization for JavaScript via Canvas

Protovis is a JavaScript library for visualizing data using the canvas element. Custom views of data can be composed with simple graphical primitives like bars and dots. These primitives are called marks, and each mark encodes data visually through dynamic properties such as color and position.
