From the description, "Graph and allows very complex data transformations, filtering, and soon even animation & interactivity. Combine that with the power of wiki template parameters and Lua scripting, and the results could be stellar. Up to you really. Vega+d3 gives us a huge list of charting options and maps with numerous projections and ability to highlight individual regions. Lastly, graphs could be rendered either in a browser (more interactivity), or on the server (faster load)."
If you have a need for visualizing information within your wikit, take a look at the Graph extension. Feedback and suggestions can be given in Phabricator with the #graph tag.
Here's a recording of a Google Hangout from the MediaWiki Youtube Channel demoing the new Graph extension and the Lyra editor.
