I’m using plotly.js to visualize oceanographic data in the browser and some of my target visualizations include 1 million or more data points. This is only possible (without terrible performance and/or crashes) with webgl based traces. It seems to be the case that plotly is moving away from these (at least as far as contour and heatmap go). I’m a little unclear on whether this represents a decision to move away from supporting large data sizes, misconceptions about the value of webgl based visualizations, or something else that I’m missing.
If anyone in the community can provide some clarity it would be much appreciated.
