Create some form of tree / node linking chart
Highcharts doesn't currently appear to have any tree / node linking chart types. A few examples would be:
- Dendograms: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dendrogram
- Hierarchical clustering: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hierarchical_clustering
- Minimum Spanning Tree: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minimumspanningtree
The above chart types vary in their purpose and how they are constructed. But this request is simply to have some form of tree / node linking chart capabilities in highcharts.
Once it becomes possible to chart a basic tree or hierarchy structure, it may be easier to extend functionality to create further chart types along the same thinking.
Plot.ly currently offers both dendrogram's and tree plots within their python API. But of course there's no beating Highcharts when it comes to polish, elegance and interactivity.
Thanks for writing! We have support for treemaps in Highcharts 4, and we’re considering adding the related hyperbolic tree maps after the release of HC5.
Hello! I also wonder is there any plans for Dendrograms, or it won't be considered at this point?

Any progress with Dendrograms?
Excellent, thank you. The hyperbolic tree would certainly be a welcome addition.
