p5.js

I have used Processing in the past and wanted to test its browser, canvas/javascript, implementation in p5.js. I found the experiment quite useful. However the same interface could be developed at a fraction of the time and with easier programming logic in d3.js. I fiddled with interactivity as well but I am largely unconvinced p5 is the right tool for the job - it is too intensive computationally and cumbersome to keep track of the mouse location and looping on each mouse move to find the data points and trigger the tooltips.

I also wanted to test drive (again) the idea of visualizing time on both the x and y axis. This is a continuation of an experiment with unconventional visualizations that started in this project. I find this one to be more successful than the previous attempt except it is in dire need of an interactive component to aid the reading of the records.
