Day 91 of 180 Days of Data Viz Learning #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.
Code Learning:

Treehouse Back-to-Basics (again, not taking notes for basic review):

Going through Front-End WebDev

Reading and Learning Data Visualization Theoretically/Critically:

Reading Nathan Yau’s book Visualize This

179-188 Visualizing Relationships

  • Remember, correlation is on a scatter plot goes up diagonal right versus negative, diagonal left.  Points that not follow pattern = no correlation p 182
  • Increasing effectiveness of scatterplots with making the dots pop on a background, reduce borders, and a visible curve. p 187
