Book Description

Learn how to create beautiful, interactive, browser-based data visualizations with the JavaScript library. This hands-on book shows you how to use a combination of JavaScript and to build everything from simple bar charts to complex infographics. You’ll learn how to use basic D3 tools by building visualizations based on real data from the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority.

Using historical tables, geographical information, and other data, you’ll bus breakdowns and accidents and the percentage of subway trains running on time, among other examples. By the end of the book, you’ll be prepared to build your own web-based data visualizations with D3.

  • Apply axis and line generators to simplify aspects of building visualizations
  • Create a simple UI that allows users to investigate and compare data
