HTML5 – Data Visualisation Open Source Development Tools

I started working on a new interactive dataviz yesterday and I am determined that this project is designed and developed using HTML5 rather then Flash. I have already started putting some bits together with Google Charts but just thought it might be useful to list some of the various dataviz open source tools/libraries that I am curently looking at in case there are any other Flash people looking to move other to HTML5 as well.

I am also very keen to hear from anybody else if they have some open source tools to recommend.

D3 - Data-Driven Documents

D3.js is a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. D3 helps you bring data to life using HTML, SVG and CSS. D3’s emphasis on web standards gives you the full capabilities of modern browsers without tying yourself to a proprietary framework, combining powerful visualization components and a data-driven approach to DOM manipulation.
