Day 54 of 180 Days of Data Viz #jfdi

I’m doing some form of data visualization learning for 180 days because I need to #JFDI.  See post explaining how and why I’m doing this.

Knight Journalism Course for the Americas:  Data Visualization and Infographics with D3! 

Code Learning:

Scott Murray From Bar Chart to Scatterplot

Three Takeways:

  • Started getting a thought process down on how to approach building a new visual -> eg starting at x y coordinate and moving to changing variables
  • Look in dev console for missing pieces and change code blocks bit by bit, there’s a tendency with D3 to want to make a lot of changes at once – at least on my end, but don’t forget coding fundamentals when approaching these problems
  • The console is your friend in testing out changes to scales and domains
