Fronteers 2012

At Guardian Interactive we work to create innovative visualisations to delight and inform our readers. With this talk I want to show you how to design and build not just simple and not-so-simple charts to illustrate data but how to design & architect larger more complex pieces of content that tell stories and illustrate ideas. We'll start by exploring some of the best tools that exist today, including d3 & Modest Maps and then looking and how we can use these tools in conjunction with some new open libraries tools we're releasing at the guardian that make it easier to structure larger interactive content, using both realtime dashboards and narrative-driven visualisation as examples.
