Data Visualization - The World Doesn't Need Another Map

A session at Chicago Web Conf 2012

Saturday 6th October, 2012

4:00pm to 4:50pm (CST)

Sometimes ideas drive technology; sometimes it's the other way around. We'll show data visualization projects they've worked on and talk about coming up with ideas and their technical execution. Data examples will be drawn from crime, criminal justice, political transparency, and public transportation. Code examples will include D3, Highcharts, and some homegrown methods.
