You'll discover: * Why some infographics are extraordinarily effective, while others fail * How D3 generates high-quality SVG vector graphics * How to structure data so D3 can easily visualize it * How to build incredible interactive visuals with D3's sub-libraries of transitions and animations * How to use D3 to build truly amazing maps King teaches D3 skills via a carefully designed infographic project that begins simple and gradually expands to reflect each chapter's lessons. Building on what you learn in this hands-on project, he then introduces multiple graphical forms and a wide range of advanced techniques - all taught through concise, real-world examples.
