Factmint’s suite of data visualizations, Factmint Charts, are fundamentally based upon Progressive Enhancement. Maybe you are not sure what Progressive Enhancement is, or how it affects data visualization, but it is the real differentiator between Factmint Charts and the other data visualization tools out there. So, here is an explanation as to what it is and why it matters:
Factmint Charts work by progressively enhancing HTML tables. That is, our users start with a simple HTML table as the representation of the data, then our scripts and CSS enhance that view of the data into a Pie Chart, or Bubble Chart or whatever.
Progressive enhancement focuses on the content. Note the difference: I didn’t even mention browsers. – A List Apart
Relative to some popular alternatives that stands the PE approach in good stead.
