Tool: Axiis

Axiis is an open source data visualization framework built upon the degrafa graphics and Adobe Flex 3. Axiis provides pre-built visualization components as well as patterns and classes that can be used to create your own unique visualizations.

Axiis allows developers to mix and match components and build complex output by composing together basic building blocks.

Axiis focuses on Geometry and Layout. All data visualizations are ultimately represented as simple or complex geometries that plot specific data points relative to visual coordinates. The layouts describe how the data is to be converted into geometric representations.

A visualization example built from Axiis is shown below:
