This video explains how to draw a line chart using CSV.
- [Instructor] Now, that our data are shipshape,…let's set about using them to draw a line chart.…Now, one thing we need to do quickly,…so that we can see the resulting chart,…is just add some style declarations here for path.…So, we've got stroke of green…and we'll give it a stroke-width there of two.…We can arrange our get data on multiple lines here,…as long as it's within these curly brackets.…In this section, we're going to put together…all the things that we saw in the last chapter.…
So, we're going to start by defining height of 300…and a width of 500.…The next thing we need is some max and min…of the data that we have.…And we need this for the scales.…And the scales are going to be used to draw the chart…and to draw the axes.…So, we'll declare var max,…which we're going to use to return the maximum price data.…So, it's d3.max().…The data is held in an array called data.…And then again, we're using this optional function parameter…to tell d3 precisely which data point we want…which is d.price.…
And if we log back to the console,…
