Scott from the Filament Group has posted about a new jQuery plugin called
Visualize which they have created that creates charts and graphs from
tabular data using the HTML canvas element.

Pretty charts for everyone thanks to Visualize!

Accessible data visualization in HTML has always been tricky to achieve,
particularly because elements such as images allow only the most basic
features for providing textual information to non-visual users.

Using the plugin is as simple as including jQuery and the plugin and calling
the code from your HTML table:
$('table').visualize();
