Demo of Spatial UI - early early prototype

Along the lines of interactive SVG visualisation, I’ve dabbled in https://d3js.org/, which was honestly a little fiddly but unbelievably powerful in terms of reactive SVG DOM manipulation.

Immediately when seeing the spatial visualisation, I thought of a force-directed graph. I’m pretty sure it would be possible to use a demo like that as a starting point and have individual, specific nodes appear in a prescribed coordinate arrangement relative to each other, with whatever node types indicating maybe a hierarchy of connections or something.

Much easier said than done, I’m sure :stuck_out_tongue:

Thanks, yes d3js is a lot more complicated and I would consider overkill. I think a force directed graph might be one of the ways to go, however taxonomy and organization will be a lot of work. https://graphcommons.com/ have done simular concepts with different “objects/data” .
