Visual Planning Tool

An interactive 'Gantt-like' chart for visualising project and portfolio information. github1

Time based activity attributes are grouped on the y-axis and the layout is optimised to reduce the overall chart size. The aim in most cases is to create a project or portfolio 'view on a page' Further insight can be gained by using any attribute to group /categorise the data.

Zoom exposes /hides text that doesn't fit inside the timeline bars and allows exploration of the plan in combination with the chart drag function. Bars can be individually re-sized or moved and the optimised layout is refreshed automatically. Later versions: • Combination with a grid to enable text editing • Drag and drop of multiple bars by group or all bars • An npm version with only the required d3 modules • User guide and examples. (d3 v3 Example)

The axes for the chart are from Vasco Asturiano Timelines Chart

Quick start

const myChart = pegChart();
