Training Online Data Visualisation (D3.js)D3 — also known as d3.js — is the most powerful tool for creating custom data visualisations on the web. You can use D3 to create anything from simple bar charts to complex, interactive mapping applications. Sure, there are easier ways to visualise data on the web, but when you need full control over a custom and interactive graphic, D3 is the only way to go.
The challenge is that D3 can be a bit… counterintuitive at first. This workshop will get you comfortable with “the D3 way,” which includes D3’s core concepts of binding data to elements in the DOM. You’ll learn what the DOM is (if that’s new for you, don’t be scared!), and how to use D3 to create and manipulate graphics, to render your charts in the browser.

ContentEach session includes lots of time for questions and personal feedback.
Day 1: We learn the basics of D3’s unique approach, along with an introduction to Scalable Vector Graphics, to create our first charts!
Day 2: We dive into d3 and show how the scatter plot could be created using d3. Homework is to create a chart of your own choosing.
Day 3: Today is all about BYOD: Bring Your Own Data! Bring your own, real-life data set. We’ll get the data loaded into the browser and have you on your way creating custom charts with it.
The training will be online, facilitated over video using Zoom or a similar platform. Code examples will be provided.
