Prior to this he a has developed interactive graphics and maps both for German news websites and international organizations such as General Electric and the Open Knowledge Foundation.
For an entire generation of developers frameworks such as D3 have made it increasingly easy to produce web-based data visualizations. However, facing the limitations of cross-browser and multi-device development, there are still challenges left. Among them we find the challenge of producing animated web graphics that appease both our the hunger for high complexity with the need for high frame rates. What are the major bottle necks in data visualization using web-technologies such as SVG, CSS and HTML5 Canvas, and how can we work around them?
