This video explains how to add an SVG to the DOM using D3.
The basic method with d3 is to select an element…that already exists in the dom,…and add or append a new element to it.…For now we don't have any elements within the body tags.…So we're going to append to the body itself.…To do this type d3.select("body").append("svg").…Give that a semicolon and save it.…So now you need to go to Firefox and…load up your d3.html page.…The first thing we're gonna do is…check the dom for our SVG element.…
So we go HTML, <body>, and there we have an SVG element.…So far, so good.…Now we're going to set a width and height for the SVG.…
