Subtitled "Data visualization with JavaScript", this guide to the D3 JavaScript library that shows how the API can be used for data visualization over HTML, CSS, and SVG has been completely updated. Author Elijah Meeks shows how to start with a structure, dataset, or algorithm; mix in D3; then programmatically generate static, animated, or interactive images that scale to any screen or browser.


It has many real-world examples, including force and network diagrams, workflow illustrations, geospatial constructions, and more.

In his review of the original edition, D3.js in Action, Ian Elliot awarded a rating of 4.5 out of 5 and concluded:

A good guide book in the style of a holiday guide book that has lots of things you need to see. As long as you are happy about JavaScript, HTML and CSS then this is a good way to discover D3.js. 

Ian Stirk gave a rating of 4.5 to D3.js By Example (Packt Publishing) saying:

 If you want to learn data visualization using the D3 framework, I can heartily recommend this instructive example-led book.
