  12. 12. - Only approach that can be optimized for low-bandwidth - Separate application can be used for offline visualizations - Uses publicly available toolkits with good documentation - Starter kits available that can be modified to fit the exact need Solutions: Modular application using toolkits Pros - Requires some development capacity to make feature changes to application Cons
