Bokeh for 3D visualization

Hi All,

I am a novice to Bokeh for data visualization. I want to use 3D visualizations like Scatterplot on Bokeh. I know there is a surface3d example using VisJS on the Bokeh gallery.

Customization and access to parameters like camera angle are not easy.

A few questions which I would love to hear your opinions on:

How to access camera position using a Bokeh/VisJS 3D chart?

Is canvas controllable using Bokeh?

Are there any bokeh/threejs 3D visualization implementations?

Appreciate your replies.

Hi,

AFAIK vis.js does not really expose many or any of these things. It is really a toy library. It was chosen because it was a nice way to demonstrate that Bokeh could be extended to wrap other third party libraries, not because it was an especially good 3d library. And to be clear: that example definitely is not mean to suggest that any kind of 3d capability is supported directly by the project, because that is not the case. If you need a real, sophisticated 3d widget to integrate with Bokeh, I think you'll need to make a new custom extension with a more capable library than vis.js (and if you do so, please share with the community for the benefit of others).

Thanks,

Bryan
