Data-Driven Documents: Visualizing library data with D3.js
- Bret Davidson, North Carolina State University Libraries, firstname.lastname@example.org
Power usually comes at a cost, and D3 makes you pay with a steeper learning curve than many alternatives. In this talk, I will get you over the hump by introducing the core construct of D3, the Data-Join. I will also discuss when you might want to use D3.js, share some examples, and explore some advanced utilities like scales and shapes. I will close with a brief overview of how we are successfully using D3 at NCSU and why investing time in learning D3 might make sense for your library.
