Learn how to create interactive geospatial visualizations that run on all popular browsers. This course will teach you how to use the D3 library to render maps using openly available data, and draw beautiful visualizations on top of them.
Conventional charts like bar charts or pie charts serve their purpose well when visualizing conventional data, but are sorely lacking when trying to represent geographically significant data, like population, GDP per capita, or capital cities of a country. In this course, Geospatial Mapping with D3, you will gain the ability to build your own geospatial visualizations that can run in any popular browser. First, you will learn all about the open standards used for representing maps, such as GeoJSON. Next, you will discover how to leverage D3 to draw maps using these standards. Finally, you will explore how to draw dazzling visualizations on top of your map, and make them interactive. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the D3 geospatial library needed to build you own maps and visualizations.
