Overview of this book

Want to get started with impressive interactive visualizations and implement them in your daily tasks? This book offers the perfect solution-D3.js. It has emerged as the most popular tool for data visualization. This book will teach you how to implement the features of the latest version of D3 while writing JavaScript using the newest tools and technique You will start by setting up the D3 environment and making your first basic bar chart. You will then build stunning SVG and Canvas-based data visualizations while writing testable, extensible code,as accurate and informative as it is visually stimulating. Step-by-step examples walk you through creating, integrating, and debugging different types of visualization and will have you building basic visualizations (such as bar, line, and scatter graphs) in no time. By the end of this book, you will have mastered the techniques necessary to successfully visualize data and will be ready to use D3 to transform any data into an engaging and sophisticated visualization.

Shape Primitives of D3


You've made it through the chapter on data!

We really got to the core of what D3 is about - that is, data wrangling. We've looked at the various types of JavaScript flow control, resolved more promises than we care to remember and converted some shapefiles to TopoJSON -- at this point, your ES2015 skills should be approaching (if they aren't already over) 9,000.

Lastly, we made a cool map that showed a particular set of data, where we mashed up multiple datasets to create something cool. You'll find most of the more interesting data visualizations you build involve combining multiple datasets -- with your new-found skills with promises, you're well on your way to mashing up all the data.

In the next chapter, we'll look at making our stuff pop visually by adding animations. Now things are starting to get pretty exciting!
