This video covers the concept of other built-in D3 scales and where to find out more.
- [Instructor] I want to show you a few scales…and axes that are available to you,…even though we won't dwell on them in the course.…We've looked at linear, time series, and ordinal scales,…and these are by far the most commonly used.…But D3 has several other scales…that can save you a great deal of effort.…It's easiest to demonstrate this with a block.…This block uses version three, not version four,…but it shows us the same principle by showing axes…that are based on different scales.…So this is a linear scale, where all the parts…are evenly spaced, and this is a logarithmic scale,…which defaults to base ten but can be changed.…
This is a natural logarithm.…And then we have power scales,…first square root and then squared.…D3 supports all of these scales,…saving you having to write your own functions.…As well as plain linear scales,…we have quantile, quantize and threshold scales.…Quantile is probably the most familiar.…If you have a distribution of data,…you might divide your distribution…into a hundred groups, creating percentiles.…
