Data Visualization Strategies and Digital Cartography (D3)

This workshop provides a theoretical and practical introduction to data visualization strategies based on the Data Driven Document (D3) platform (see the Gallery for sample projects). We will discuss best practices for graphic presentation of data in general, and then evaluate the capabilities of this new toolkit as we review the wide variety of data visualizations it makes possible, from simple graphs and charts to three-dimensional data projections and digital cartography.
