New ESDU Interactive Graph system

Ten years ago ESDU introduced Interactive Graphs to provide a rapid and simple means to obtain values from graphs included in our published documents. This system used Java and required a browser plug-in. The IT policies of some companies preclude the use of Java and/or plug-ins and so some users were not able to use the interactive graphs. This release of the ESDU site, 2017-04, launches a new system that no longer uses Java and instead utilises standard web technologies found in all modern browsers.

ESDU engineers have verified the functionality of the new system by testing the graphs that are used most often by users. Nevertheless, ESDU has decided to test every interactive graph, and that process will be completed over the next few months. In the interim, the graphs that have not yet been tested will be marked with the symbol β so that users are aware that they are still to be checked by ESDU. The non-interactive original of each graph can be viewed in the associated ESDU document.
