Simple to use JSViz Visualisations (Gauge/Donut, Network, Radar/Spider, Sankey, Sunburst, Animation, Word Cloud, Bullet lists, Images)
IQVIA have released a number of custom visualisations built on top of JSViz into the public domain. The main project site on Github can be found here, please feel free to contribute issues/ideas or even code.
The code for the visualisations themselves is served from the Internet - there is no need to install anything additional in your environment once you have JSViz working.

Feedback and questions
This visualisation is part of a suite of custom visualisations that are have been placed into the public domain by IQVIA. The project home page can be found on GitHub here. Feedback is welcome using the GitHub issues feature, although please be mindful that we have full time jobs supporting our internal Spotfire community :).
The data animation custom visualisation can help you animate charts on a page by changing data markings automatically. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
Bullet lists (PowerPoint style)
The Bulleted Lists visualisation allows you to create lists that look like PowerPoint slides containing text. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
Gauges and Donuts
Gauges and Donuts allow visualisation of a single value using a gauge style presentation. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
The image viewer shows images from URLs in a simple fashion. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
Force-directed graph visualisations (network charts) are useful for visualising relationships between entities (the example below shows relationships between genes and diseases). This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
Radar (spider) charts
Radar charts (sometimes called Spider Plots) show attributes of items in a radial fashion. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
A Sankey chart is a type of flow diagram, in which the width of the arrows is shown proportionally to the flow quantity. It is useful to show directional relationships between entities (i.e. where a value 'v' moves from 'a' to 'b'). Common examples include the representation of conversion of energy from one form to another, the loss of some item during a multi-step process, the flow of money between entities or the flow of users through a web site. It can also be used to show the linkage between two types of entity (by using one entity for 'from' and the other for 'to') - e.g. the commonality between review scoring by two different reviewers. This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
A Sunburst chart shows hierarchical data in a multi-level Pie chart. The chart can be configured to show all levels of the hierarchy, or to allow a user to zoom up and down the hierarchy.

Word clouds are often used to show how often specific words or phrases appear in a dataset. They can also be used for simple presentation reasons (e.g. to show a list of recent achievements). This link opens a live 'demo' using our test harness (i.e. without Spotfire).
It is also easy to write one-off custom visuals using the framework on top of JSViz. The ‘JSVizHelper’ can be loaded as a script into the JSViz visualisation, providing a simpler API than JSViz itself, along with automatic inclusion of JQuery and JQuery UI.
