To see the interactive versions of these charts, head over to our blog. If you’re inclined to share, here is the link: http://blog.plot.ly/post/104343149692/eleven-interactive-fractals-in-2d-3d
Fractals show a repeating pattern that displays at each scale. They can be both beautiful and useful. Benoit Mandelbrot, pioneer of Fractal geometry, discusses fractals at length in a PBS interview:
Fractal geometry, as he called this new math, is worlds apart from the Euclidean variety we all learn in school, and it has sparked discoveries in myriad fields, from finance to metallurgy, cosmology to medicine.
Using Plotly and Plotly’s APIs, we can make interactive fractals. Below, find a collection of 2D and 3D fractals.
P.S. Want to help use improve Plotly by taking our survey? We’re randomly giving away ten Plotly t-shirts to survey participants.
