Hi Gabe

Interesting to hear that you've been working on a d3.js zoomable pack 
layout visualization for the Toronto budget.

For your information: Thomas Preusse from Switzerland has build such a 
zoomable app a year ago for the city budget of Bern. Nowadays also 
Zürich, Winterthur, and department budget of canton of Bern are 
visualized like that:


As far as I know Thomas is working currently on improving the app to 
merge it with the newer d3.js visualization of ASP 2014:


You might want to get in touch with Thomas to share ideas around the 
d3.js zoomable approach. Here is his GitHub repository:
