Create stunning D3 data visualizations and render them as part of a responsive design
As part of the user interface, it is important that data visualizations are context aware and should adjust according to screen size, media type, and other similar aspects. To tackle this, it is essential for web developers to ace at both D3 and responsive design using Bootstrap to make visualizations responsive across different viewing platforms. D3 is currently the go-to data visualization library, offering greater integration with web standards, and better customizability than other data visualization libraries available.
This video course starts out by describing ways in which D3JS fits into existing web standards to provide data visualization solutions that can be easily integrated. After working through the basic flow of simple visualizations, we'll start adding features: tooltips, axes, and scales. We'll take a look at interactivity and transitions. Then we'll walk through the use of external data sources, including CSV, TSV, JSON, and GeoJSON, which will prepare us for more in-depth visualizations.
Further on we'll tackle responsive design, covering all the basic concepts, and then work our way through a site mockup the old fashioned way, looking for breakpoints and using media queries to provide smooth screen size transitions. Our work with responsive design will then be applied to a number of our early data visualizations.
By the end of this course, you will have an armoury full of tools to create feature-rich data visualizations with D3JS that are responsive on different platforms.
