In Detail

Data Visualizations make it easier for humans to understand data and analyze trends within the data. In this course, join us to learn how to incorporate data visualization into your web skills using HTML, JavaScript, and the D3 data visualization library. We’ll take you through building a visualization using data downloaded from NASA. You’ll learn how to use D3 to read data into a web page, select and create new elements, and position and style elements to generate a striking color visualization. Along the way, you’ll learn from the ground up how to use D3: how data binding works, how to use methods to add attributes and style on D3 elements, and how to use scale functions to process data points as you build the visualization.

At the end of the course, you’ll have gained some new skills that you can apply to data to make it easier to understand.
