Analyzing Demographic And Political Change Using D3

A discussion of the use of the popular JavaScript library D3.js to create and analyze interactive visualizations of demographic and political changes over time. Topics will include changes in state legislative partisanship (http://xenocrypt.github.io/StateTrendArticle.html, http://xenocrypt.git...), changes in urban demographics (http://xenocrypt.github.io/CityGraph.html, http://xenocrypt.github.io/C...), and changes in Presidential voting (http://xenocrypt.github.io/FairfieldCountyVoting.html) using combinations of maps, scatterplots, line charts, and combinations thereof. The discussion will include the technical aspects of coding but focus on choices of visualization for clarity, flexibility, etc, and so is probably suitable for a beginner-intermediate audience.
