Lately been experimenting and playing around with different javascript data visualization libraries and found this interesting one Vis.js, a great dynamic browser based visualization library that can handle large amounts of dynamic data. A Visual Interactive System, which the library consists of the following components; Dataset, Timeline, Network, Graph2D and Graph3D.

So I built this Network Graph… Astérix Network Graph, about characters and albums.
(Yep, you must have figured out by now that I am a fan… and that I have data!)

The result can be viewed at the following GitHub page ->


  • Vertices (Nodes) : Characters, Albums
  • Edges (Links): fellow_companion, appeared_in
