These days I was thinking to use D3.js to make my project directly. In terms of literal reviews. I haven’t read essays. I will start reading books such as The Visual Display of Quantitative Information by Edward Tufte, Designing for Information by Isabel Meirelles and Pattern Recognition by Chrisstian Swinechart. Although I still don’t figure out how to load interactive maps, I find some API such as HERE API https://developer.here.com/.
And I want to create icons for micro mapping charity shops and supermarkets to make the maps look like water color paintings.
Last but not the least, I will visit all the charity shops and supermarkets to collect more data by myself. For example, I will collect the open time and closed time and also the organization within the shops.
