Look inside

In this liveProject, you’ll use the D3.js visualization library to create a streamgraph visualization of the ethnicity of the Oscars. This visualization will explore the representation of ethnic minorities at the Academy Awards ceremony throughout its history. Once you’ve constructed your basic streamgraph, you’ll append a composite tooltip to the visualization, play around with transitions, and give consideration to making your graph responsive.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
