Shape Primitives of D3


Hopefully, by now you feel that you have a secure understanding of the work you want to do using D3 to visualize data. We went through some examples and laid some good ground rules for building high-quality data visualizations that not only inform an audience, but also look pretty spectacular in doing so. We also discussed ensuring that your work functions well on mobile.
