JavaScript Data Visualization Libraries Updated with New Features — Meet AnyChart JS Charts 8.5.0

December 25th, 2018 by AnyChart Team

JavaScript Data Visualization Libraries Updated with New Features — Meet AnyChart JS Charts 8.5.0On this wonderful day, we are excited to announce a new major update for our JavaScript data visualization libraries: AnyChart 8.5.0 is released!

The new version brings a lot of advanced features and improvements that make our JS (HTML5) charting solutions even more powerful. 3D Surface Plot, Word Tree, and much more — spare a minute to look through the highlights of the 8.5.0 release of AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyGantt, and AnyMap.

New Features in AnyChart JS Charts 8.5.0

JavaScript Word Tree Chart Type in AnyChart 8.5.0
Word Tree

Use the Word Tree chart type to visualize a set of words in a hierarchical way. Word Trees display which words most frequently follow or precede a certain target word or to show a hierarchy of terms. The font size of the words represents their weight — the frequency / number of children. Look at the Word Tree examples in our gallery and check out the Word Tree documentation.

JavaScript Surface Chart, or 3D Surface Plot, in AnyChart 8.5.0
Surface Chart

Pick the Surface Chart (3D Surface Plot) type to visualize three-dimensional data as a mesh surface. Surface Charts can be helpful when you need to reveal the optimum combinations between two data sets. Colors and patterns in this chart type indicate which areas are in the same range of values. Look at the Surface Chart examples in our gallery and check out the Surface Chart documentation.

JavaScript Charts Grouped by Series in AnyChart 8.5.0
Multi-Series Charts Grouped by Series

Get data points in a multi-series chart grouped by series when you want to visualize comparison in a different way. Now you can enable this mode for all basic Cartesian charts. Look at the Multi-Series Column Chart Categorized by Series example in our gallery.

JavaScript Data Visualization with Y Scroller in AnyChart 8.5.0
Y Scroller

Enable scrollers when one screen is not enough to properly visualize data — in release 8.5.0, we’ve delivered Y Scroller in addition to X Scroller. Look at the Chart with Y Scroller example in our gallery.

Minimum and Maximum Gaps on JavaScript Stock Chart Timescale in AnyChart 8.5.0
Stock Chart Timescale Minimum and Maximum Gaps

Add gaps to the beginning and to the end of the stock chart timescale whenever you need empty space over there. Just specify how many intervals of what type to include where. Look at the Annotated Candlestick Chart with Minimum/Maximum Gaps example in our gallery.

More Improvements for JavaScript Data Visualization Libraries

Release 8.5.0 of JavaScript data visualization libraries AnyChart, AnyStock, AnyGantt, and AnyMap has also delivered multiple important improvements and bug fixes.

In particular, we’ve added new chart constructors, ordinal scale modes, stock chart tooltip’s single display mode, and more.
