Join Emma Saunders for an in-depth discussion in this video Introducing interaction, part of D3.js Essential Training for Data Scientists.
- [Instructor] Sometimes a story can only be told…with moving parts.…Have you seen Hans Rosling's famous TED Talk,…The Best Stats You've Ever Seen?…This is block created by Mike Bostock…to mimic what was in that presentation.…Imagine his scatter plot without animation.…Even with multiple static images, one after the other,…it wouldn't work nearly so well.…Our brains like smooth movement.…I think it can help us to understand…what's going on in a complex graphic.…There's a number of types…of interactivity covered in this chapter.…
