1.2.6.10. Where to start

1.2.6.10.1. Start with the Data

1.2.6.10.2. Not with the Message

1.2.6.10.3. Link: http://www.thefunctionalart.com/2014/01/article-about-infographics-gets.html

1.2.6.10.4. The thought starts with the message and then gets into putting other related

1.2.6.10.5. information together to support it instead of starting with the data and thinking

1.2.6.10.6. of what to make of it – the message. The advantage of taking this route is also

1.2.6.10.7. that you are not just restricted by topics or numbers or just presenting ‘news’.

1.2.6.10.8. You can go a step further and air your ‘views’ too to make a point.”

2.2.4. What It Does

2.2.4.1. Loading data into the

2.2.4.2. browser’s memory

2.2.4.3. Binding data to elements within

2.2.4.4. the document, creating new

2.2.5.3.1. Instead

2.2.5.4. hide your original data

2.2.5.4.1. client side

2.2.5.4.2. If your data can’t be

2.2.5.4.3. shared, then don’t use D3
