About

Highmaps is based on Highcharts, an SVG-based, multi-platform charting library that has been actively developed since 2009. It makes it easy to add interactive, mobile-optimized charts and maps to your web and mobile projects.

I absolutely LOVE Highcharts – very cool!


The tool is brilliant and the API and chart demos meant I could get up and running very, very quickly.

Features

Since its first release in 2009, our charting tools have been developed with the most critical enterprise needs in mind. Our world-class development team work tirelessly to ensure that we remain lock-step with our users current and future needs, as well as legacy (back to IE6) support.

Backend-agnostic

All our charting libraries works with any back-end database or server stack. Data can be given in any form, including CSV, JSON or loaded and updated live.

Wrappers for most popular languages, such as .Net, PHP, Python, Java, and R, are available from Highcharts or our community.

 Extensive Map Collection

For your convenience, we provide a collection of hundreds of maps, all optimized for fast download and rendering with Highmaps.

Create your own maps

In essence, maps are just shapes defined by SVG. It is therefore easy to create custom maps, such as this regular map of a made-up place, or this irregular map of a real place.

 Responsive across devices

Intelligent responsiveness goes beyond fitting the chart to the dimensions of its container, but automatically finds an optimal placement for non-graph elements such as legends and headings.

Touch optimized

Touch-optimized charts allow for a native experience on mobile and touch screens. Single touch-drag for data inspection, multi-touch for zooming, and more.

Color Axis

For full control over the color layout of the Highmaps choropleth maps, a separate color axis is displayed inside the legend. It inherits most features from scalar axes in order to provide common options like min, max, logarithic scale and more.

 Export & Print

With the exporting module enabled, your users can export the chart to PNG, JPG, PDF or SVG format at the click of a button, or print the chart directly from the web page.

Flexible styling

Our elegant charts render crisp and clear at any resolution and are easily styled via JavaScript or CSS.

Intuitive navigation & drilldown

Highmaps features all common ways of navigating, like plus/minus buttons, doubleclick to zoom, mousewheel zooming, multitouch and panning.

The drilldown module ensures smooth interaction between map areas on one layer, which zoom into a full map on the underlying layer. 

Options are optional

In most cases, maps look and behave exactly as you need without any modifications. For anything else, a simple options-structure allows for deep customization. Highmaps is also extendable and pluggable for experts seeking advanced animations and functionality.

Check out some advanced customizations in our community section, and plugins in our our extensions directory.

Dynamic

Numerous events supply hooks for programming against the maps, making it easy to demonstrate complex relationships between data with live, dynamic updates of data and customizable animations.

Data can be handled over to Highmaps in any form, even from a different site, and a callback function used to parse the data into an array.

Vibrant community

The largest developer community of any premium charting tool on Github, StackOverflow and other forums, is eager to offer additional assistance, platform-specific implementation advice and inspiration when you need it.

In addition, we have half-a-dozen dedicated support engineers monitoring our forums, StackOverflow, GitHub and support emails.
