Rich Javascript visualizations: D3 and Maps

Javascript and HTML5 have turned web browsers in to capable platforms for visualizing data. Join Nelson for a technical exploration of D3, a Javascript library that uses SVG to create powerful interactive visualizations. We'll explore various complex applications built using D3, then look in detail at Javascript source code for simpler examples to learn some of the basic concepts of using D3. Particular attention will be paid to d3.geo and integrating with Leaflet, two ways of working with map-based data.
