I don't think this should count for much, but when I added graphs to
Consensus Health, I chose D3 because that's what Atlas used, and I
thought it would be beneficial to minimize the variety of third party
libraries we use as a project. (It uses Javascript to render SVG
graphs, nothing fancy.)

D3 is extremely powerful, and therefore complicated as heck.
