Key FeaturesUnderstand how to best represent your data by developing the right kind of visualizationExplore the concepts of D3.js through examples that enable you to quickly create visualizations including charts, network diagrams, and mapsGet practical examples of visualizations using real-world data sets that show you how to use D3.js to visualize and interact with information to glean its underlying meaningBook DescriptionD3 has emerged as one of the leading platforms to develop beautiful, interactive visualizations over the web. We begin the course by setting up a strong foundation, then build on this foundation as we take you through the entire world of reimagining data using interactive, animated visualizations created in D3.js.In the first module, we cover the various features of D3.js to build a wide range of visualizations. We also focus on the entire process of representing data through visualizations. By the end of this module, you will be ready to use D3 to transform any data into a more engaging and sophisticated visualization.In the next module, you will learn to master the creation of graphical elements from data. Using practical examples provided, you will quickly get to grips with the features of D3.js and use this learning to create your own spectacular data visualizations with D3.js.Over the last leg of this course, you will get acquainted with how to integrate D3 with mapping libraries to provide reverse geocoding and interactive maps among many other advanced features of D3. This module culminates by showing you how to create enterprise-level dashboards to display real-time data.This Learning Path combines some of the best that Packt has to offer in one complete, curated package.

Rininsland is a developer and journalist who has spent much of the last half-decade building interactive content for newspapers such as The Times, Sunday Times, The Economist, and The Guardian. During his 3 years at The Times and Sunday Times, he worked on all kinds of editorial projects, ranging from obituaries of figures such as Nelson Mandela to high-profile data-driven investigations such as The Doping Scandal, the largest leak of sporting blood test data in history.A prolific open source developer, Andrew has released many kinds of projects, ranging from small utility libraries such as Doctop (which enable the creation of live updating datasets using Google Docs) to big charting tools such as AxisJS. He is also a co-maintainer of C3.js, a widely used abstraction of D3 that greatly speeds up the creation of several basic chart types, and GitHub.js, a library that makes it easy to interact with the GitHub API.
