Interactive timeline of the PRISM scandal - Virostatiq

Constructing the visualization.


The visualization was constructed entirely in HTML5 and JavaScript. Four major libraries were used: 


-  Sigma.js for displaying the networks. The latest version does not contain some key functionality for dynamically and additively loading and unloading of subgraphs into the main graph, so the source code was updated with required methods. Separate article on that topic is upcoming. 


- Three.js for rotating Earth and all geographically-related work. Simile Timeline for the timeline.


- Flot for the bar graph.
