Data Visualization is an essential element of nearly all front-end applications. Presenting the data in the right format with the perfect impact-generating chart can make a huge difference.  While there are many charting libraries in the market, choosing the right one can be quite daunting. Not all are feature complete, customizable, or easy to integrate with your preferred development framework. And you may not discover the subtle deficiencies until you start working with it. Pesky number formatting issues? Inadequate color schemes or chart label management? Even the lack of these small, but assumed capabilities can be quite frustrating.   FusionCharts continues to top the JS charting space.
