There is a technology called d3.js that looks especially interesting: and I have spent a little time looking at it. It is data driven so Axiom can feed it data just like it does for the current graphics. A websocket connection would allow two-way interaction with Axiom.
Leaving aside technicalities I think that
is an illustration of an effective way to organize some mathematical structures/relationships. So far as I can see there is no reason calls (or code) couldn't be automatically generated from an illustration like this. The background explanations (obtained by clicking) could be expanded or linked to code. IMHO it's not complete but an excellent start for people trying to model statistical data. For instance draging and dropping particular distributions into an "analyser" for comparisons, etc..., is a logical extension. Of course the missing ingredient is an abstraction direction allowing focusing on particular properties; say different ranges, data types, and so forth. But those ideas are rendered obvious once the "style" is visible.
