Step-by-step examples walk you through creating, integrating, and debugging different types of visualizations and will have you building basic visualizations, like bar, line, and scatter graphs, in no time.

Then you’ll move on to more advanced topics, including how to:

  • Create tree maps, heat maps, network graphs, word clouds, and timelines
  • Map geographic data, and build sparklines and composite charts
  • Add interactivity and retrieve data with AJAX
  • Manage data in the browser and build data-driven web applications
  • Harness the power of the Flotr2, Flot, Chronoline.js, D3.js, Underscore.js, and Backbone.js libraries

Before you know it, you’ll be well on your way to creating simple, powerful data visualizations.
