Day 131 of 180 Days of Data Viz #jfdi #doneisbetterthanperfect

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:

Udacity Data Visualization and D3.js – DimpleJS and Narrative Structures Lectures

Three Takeaways

  • Start sharing and responding to graphics ASAP
  • Anonymous accessor function because it allows to change the behavior of a generic D3 function, eg extent to act differently below depending what we return
    • var count_extent = d3.extent(data, function(d) { return d[‘attendance]};
    • var time_extent = d3.extent(data, function(d) {return d[‘date’]};
  • Traditional journalism was around data around narrative, and data journalism is narrative around data.
    • Linear versus complex structures with data-driven storytelling
