Data Visualization With D3
Lately, I’ve been working on data visualizations at work. The idea is taking some data, whether it be votes from an election, the data from your FitBit, or anything else, and using it to tell a convincing story at a glance.
There is a magic in graphs. The profile of a curve reveals in a ﬂash a whole situation — the life history of an epidemic, a panic, or an era of prosperity. The graph informs the mind, awakens the imagination, convinces.
