ZingChart emerged out of the development of a deep web analytics system in need of some standard charting features. Unfortunately, the state of the art Flash and <canvas> based graphing systems kept buckling under the volume of data provided and lacked the required flexibility. As a result, the ZingChart project was born in 2008 and officially released about one year later.
Since then, we have not waited for an official release to add features. We have been working full time to improve ZingChart based on our internal needs and customer requests. We gathered all these additions and several new ones into ZingChart 2.0. And of course, ZingChart 2.0 still remains true to our original goals.
Our mission is to provide a charting and visualization system that is:
ZingChart has hundreds of features and can be used to create all kinds of visualizations, from the most simple charts that adhere to flat design principles, to complex dashboards and graphs that are heavily styled.
Most charting projects require more than 100 or even 500 data points. Yet key performance gains in some libraries seem to disappear with larger data sizes. Luckily, ZingChart exceeds the competition when it comes to large data packets.

A: ZingChart provides a default theme, but infographic design is an art as well as a science. If you want help, we can do that (for a fee) or point you to others who can. Just like Photoshop doesn't make you a graphic artist, ZingChart can’t make your visualizations instant data masterpieces. But it gives you all the tools to make them useful and memorable.
A: It’s a fine line between offering a competitive feature set and overwhelming the user. However, we know our job is to hide complexity and we think we’ve done a pretty good job of making a usable charting tool.
