In this liveProject, you’ll explore and experiment with the D3.js library’s flexibility as you evolve a simple histogram into an intricate and interactive visualization. You’ll build visualizations to illustrate the gender pay gap in sports, expand them to include individual players, and even add special interactive visual effects.
This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books for 90 days.
Anne-Marie Dufour has extended background in mechanical engineering, computational fluid dynamics and frontend development. This unique skill set has helped her develop a solid understanding of how to use data visualization to apprehend complex phenomena and realities, and translate these into modern web applications.
Basics of D3.js
Basics of HTML and CSS
Structuring frontend development projects
Basic JS: data structures, data manipulation, functions, ECMAScript 6
Using D3 to interact with the DOM
Loading an external dataset
Binding data to a selection
you will learn
In this liveProject, you’ll explore how to represent distributions with D3. You’ll get hands-on experience with D3’s force layout to position SVG shapes on a visualization, as well as mouse events to reveal a tooltip and play with SVG filters.
Binning data with D3
Generate a histogram, a curve and a density plot
Creating a complex layout from a rich dataset
Using D3’s force layout to position elements within a visualization
Listening to mouse event to reveal a tooltip
Appending SVG filters to create unique visual effects
You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
Each project is divided into several achievable steps.
While within the liveProject platform, get help from other participants and our expert mentors.
