The amount of data we collect have exploded over the past two decades, and with all that data, we need a way to synthesize and communicate them. Data visualization can be as simple as line charts and bar charts in a stock app, and as complex and sophisticated as a visual essay in the New York Times or The Pudding.

In this session, we will cover how to code data visualizations (and data art!) for the web with SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to draw shapes in the browser and D3.js to map data to those shapes.

Please have a Github account ready.


This is part 2 of a three-part series on data visualization:
