Overview

AmChartsis programming library for all your data visualization needs. You can download and use it for free. The only limitation of the free version is that a small link to this web site will be displayed in the top left corner of your charts. If you would like to use charts without this link, or you appreciate the software and would like to support its creators, please purchase a commercial license. For more info please check AmCharts Home.

Rotating Map

Simply define a blank divwith a unique idin your HTML markup. Then initialize the chart via javascript. With amCharts 4 you can create amazing Map charts and you don’t have to be limited to flattened representation of Earth. As you can see in this demo, you can use an orthographic projection to display the planet as an interactive globe.
