Data Sets & Data Sources
To help you get started, we’ve pre-cleaned three (3) datasets so you can get visualizing immediately:
If you’d rather curate your own dataset instead, we’ve also gathered a list of potential data sources that you might find interesting:
- D3’s Stack Overflow
- Twitter posts (#d3js, @d3js_org)
- D3’s Google Group
- D3 Meetup Groups
- And any other data sources—as long as it’s D3.js related, the sky’s the limit!
- (Of course, we’d be delighted if you want to share your cleaned data sets with us ☺️)
- It must use d3.js
- If must be related to the theme: celebrating the D3 community
- Submit your own original work made for the contest
- Ensure that any graphics or other collateral is free from copyright restrictions
- You can submit multiple entries.
