The JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit provides tools for creating Interactive Data Visualizations for the Web. The toolkit implements advanced features of information visualization like TreeMaps, an adapted visualization of trees based on the SpaceTree, a focus+context technique to plot Hyperbolic Trees, a radial layout of trees with advanced animations (RGraph) and other visualizations.[1]

In November 2010 the toolkit was acquired by the Sencha Labs Foundation.[2] Further development on the toolkit involves WebGL support,[3] CSS3 animations and more visualizations.

The JavaScript InfoVis Toolkit was chosen as a mentoring organization and project for the Google Summer of Code 2011[4]
