I work as a feedback mechanism for organizations and teams to help them understand what’s going on with their products and processes. I do this by collecting and organizing their data, visually exploring it, enriching it with other data and metrics, then presenting my findings using creative information design techniques. This leads to improved business performance and often sparks a data-driven culture throughout my clients organizations.
Basic Charting Hi this is Ben Sullins and welcome to this module Basic Charting using D3js. This is the second module in our course and in this one, we're going to look at basic charting. We're going to start with building a bar chart. Now we built a bar chart in the previous module, so we'll continue from there and we'll revisit that example, so if you didn't catch all that you won't be left out. Then we'll look at coloring the bar chart. How do we actually use data to change the color of the bars? We'll talk about adding labels and how do we do that? Then we'll get building a line chart. Line charts are a bit different than bars in how the shapes are rendered and how we place them on the page and then we'll look at a scatter plot. Scatter plots are a real great way of comparing multiple measures, profit versus sales for example and seeing how things cluster together and where the outliers might be.
Enhancing Your Viz Part 1 - Scales and Axis Hi, this is Ben Sullins and welcome to this module on Enhancing Your Visualizations using D3. This is a two-part module and the first part we're going to talk about scale and axes. We're trucking along here getting towards the second half of the course and this is where we're going to really try to fine tune our visualizations and make them presentable to our end users. First we're going to talk about scaling. What are we talking about when we say scaling and what does that mean in D3? We'll actually go into an example of it. We'll talk about adding axes and referencing those in D3 and how we create them, and then we'll going to through a functional example of actually doing it. Let's get started.
Enhancing Your Viz Part 2 - Interactivity Hi this is Ben Sullins with Pluralsight and welcome to the second part of this module on Enhancing Your Visualizations using D3 on interactivity. We're getting towards the end of our middle section here on Enhancing your visualization a and we're going to start by looking at adding a filter. We'll look at how to animate things, animations usually detract from visualizations, but in some cases when we're adding a filter or changing the data it's really important to make that smooth and feel natural to our uses so that way the overall experience is positive and lastly we'll look at adding some tooltips, ways that users can hover over things and see some more detials. Let's get started.
Mapping Hi. This is Ben Sullins with Pluralsight, and welcome to this module on Mapping using D3. js. We're heading in the home stretch here, and we're getting into some really fun stuff where we can draw maps using all kinds of interesting new stuff built into D3. We'll take a look at the first part of that, which is called GeoJSON. Then we'll get into some demos actually drawing maps, show you how to add color to the map or what's also know as a choropleth, and we'll talk about adding points as in cities on states. Let's get started.
