D3 Sunburst Visualisation

D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. It binds arbitrary data to a Document Object Model (DOM), and then applies data-driven transformations to the document. In this example, the library is used to create sunburst charts. A sunburst is an adjacency diagram. Rather than drawing a link between parent and child in a hierarchy, nodes are drawn as solid areas (in this case wedges), and their placement relative to adjacent nodes reveals their position in the hierarchy. This visualisation is derived from work by the Stanford Visualization Group.

You can select multiple values within a selection box by holding down CTRL (PC) or CMD (Mac) while clicking on your selections.

NOTE: Please bear in mind that a visualisation cannot be generated where the relevant metadata is not available.
