Publisher Comments:

Create and publish your own interactive data visualization projects on the Web—even if you have little or no experience with data visualization or web development. Its easy and fun with this practical, hands-on introduction. Author Scott Murray teaches you the fundamental concepts and methods of D3, a JavaScript library that lets you express data visually in a web browser. Along the way, youll expand your web programming skills, using tools such as HTML and JavaScript.

  • Use smooth, animated transitions to show changes in your data
  • Introduce interactivity to help users explore data through different views
  • Create customized geographic maps with data
  • Explore hands-on with downloadable code and over 100 examples
