D3 Data Visualization

There's no escaping the fact that data visualization is hot right now. Everyone wants to tell their data's story visually, whether it be through a map, chart, or more detailed presentation. The difficulty is there are so many different tools that solve this, each one with their own benefits and limitations. We feel D3.js is the most awesome tool for handling this task -- which is the approach we've used for the sites like the Nation's Report Card, BlueCross BlueShield of North Carolina, GlobalChange, and others.

We'll cover:

  • Getting data out of Drupal and into D3
  • What D3 is and why you should be using it
  • D3 visualization techniques:
    • Charts & Graphs
