Update 1: Proposal and Curriculum

By Noah Hubbard

February 08, 2019

For my self-guided project, I am going to focus on data visualization, and specifically trying to create an interactive map with D3.

1. Finding geographic data that would work well with D3

2. Obtain GeoJSON

3. Learning basic Javascript

4. Learning SVG

5. Projecting a map

6. Creating paths

7. Drawing a map

8. Text elements

9. Pan and zoom

10. Event handlers


Since I have little experience with JavaScript, I don't necessarily expect to get through all of this, but I am going to do my best to make progress with learning JavaScript and exploring the D3 package.
