Creating Circle Packing Chart with JavaScript

September 8th, 2022 by Awan Shrestha

Circle Packing Chart on a web pageA circle packing chart is a common data visualization technique for representing hierarchically organized data through nested circles. Due to the similarity to a treemap, which uses nested rectangles for the same purpose, sometimes it is called a circular treemap. Introduced to data analysis by American mathematician William Thurston in 1985, circle packings greatly reveal the hierarchical structure of data.

I want to show how you can easily build an elegant interactive circle packing chart with the help of JavaScript! In this step-by-step tutorial, we will be representing the world’s 100 wealthiest people in 2022 by country and industry, according to Forbes’ list of billionaires. So, get your packings done and get ready as your brain is going to get slightly richer!
