Performance and Scale

  • There 2 methods to consider using when rendering D3, Canvas or SVG
  • Canvas is better when dealing with images, and can be faster depending on what you’re drawing
  • SVG is generally more flexible however if you’re drawing a ton of marks (eg. dots) than it can hurt performance
