3D in D3

Erik Bernhardsson

D3 doesn’t have support for 3D but you can do projections into 2D pretty easily. Given a bunch of 3D coordinates, how do you rotate them in 3D space? Not sure whether the 3D animation is cool or just annoying, but I’ll prob keep it for a bit – enjoy I have spent some time lately with D3. It’s a lot of fun to build interactive graphs. See for instance this demo (will provide a longer writeup soon).

A cool thing to do when you have a high dimensional data set is to embed it in 2D or 3D for visualization.

As you may know, one of my (very geeky) interests is Approximate nearest neigbor methods, and I’m the author of a Python package called Annoy.
