Books Info:

Visual Storytelling with D3 free pdf Suddenly, infographics are everywhere. Everyone's looking to incorporate them into websites, mobile apps, and other interactive environments. One tool offers you immense power for creating visually stunning web infographics. It's called D3 ("Data-Driven Documents"), and Visual Storytelling with D3 is your start-to-finish guide to using it. Top infographics expert Ritchie S. King covers both areas you need to master to build truly outstanding infographics with D3: design issues associated with crafting well-conceived infographics that communicate effectively- and technical issues associated with wielding the D3 JavaScript library. Combining a strong framework of design principles with detailed, practical instructions, this is the most comprehensive and coherent treatment of D3 ever written. Drawing on his experience a working infographic artist, writer, and JavaScript programmer, King helps you rapidly put theory to practical use. You'll discover: * Why some infographics are extraordinarily effective, while others fail * How D3 generates high-quality SVG vector graphics * How to structure data so D3 can easily visualize it * How to build incredible interactive visuals with D3's sub-libraries of transitions and animations * How to use D3 to build truly amazing maps King teaches D3 skills via a carefully designed infographic project that begins simple and gradually expands to reflect each chapter's lessons. Building on what you learn in this hands-on project, he then introduces multiple graphical forms and a wide range of advanced techniques - all taught through concise, real-world examples.
