Understanding the core features and characteristics of D3.js data visualizations
Figuring out the more advanced features of D3.js
The truth of the matter is, you can come up with the perfect data visualization you need to meet the exact needs of your target audience gathered in that meeting room down the hall, but what works in the physical meeting room may not work in that virtual meeting room out on the World Wide Web. In this chapter, I show you how you can use D3.js technology to build custom web-based visualizations — the type of visualizations you need if you’re showcasing your work online. The power of programming in D3.js is that it enables you to create absolutely stunning, dynamic data visualizations with which your audience can interact and explore, straight from their browsers, with no add-ons required.
