D3 beginnings

Data-Driven Documents

I’m currently using d3.js to play around with some data and produce visualisations. It is an awesome javascript library from Mike Bostock who is one of the main guys behind the great visualisations you see at the New York Times. He seems to be a prolific producer of work. Between github, google groups, other forums, and holding down a day job – he must be a busy guy.

I highly recommend you check it out. I’ll be posting some d3 examples here shortly. Check out my initial play with a line chart here.

Also notice the D3 image above. It is from the main d3 page and is written entirely in SVG. Pretty cool.
