Map Club — WORKSHOP (Part II) — Introduction to Mapping in D3.js


In its final session of the semester, Map Club embarked upon the second half of a two-part workshop focused on D3.js, a JavaScript library for manipulating documents based on data. This time, participants focused on learning how to render a simple SVG map in the browser, which could serve as the basis for visualizing custom values.

Beginning with a CSV file containing the locations of art galleries within New York City, as well as a GeoJSON file encoding the boundaries of the five boroughs, the workshop guided participants through the process of visualizing the locations of the galleries in the form of a basic dot map.

Thank you to everyone who participated in Map Club this fall! Until next time, best of luck in your geospatial endeavors.
