Discover over 65 recipes to help you create breathtaking data visualizations using the latest features of D3
This book gives you all the guidance you need to start creating modern data visualizations with D3 4.x that take advantage of the latest capabilities of JavaScript.
The book starts with the basic D3 structure and building blocks and quickly moves on to writing idiomatic D3-style JavaScript code. You will learn how to work with selection to target certain visual elements on the page, then will see techniques to represente data both in programming constructs and its visual metaphor. You will learn how map values in your data domain to the visual domain using scales, and use the various shape functions supported by D3 to create SVG shapes in visualizations.
Moving on, you'll see how to use and customize various D3 axes and master transition to add bells and whistles to your otherwise dry visualization. You'll also learn to work with charts, layout, and build interactive visualizations. Next you'll work with Force, which is one of the most awe-inspiring techniques you can add to your visualizations, and you'll implement a fully functional Choropleth map (a special purpose colored map) in D3.
Finally, you'll learn to unit test data visualization code and test-driven development in a visualization project so you know how to produce high-quality D3 code.
