Understanding selectAll, data, enter, append sequence in D3.js. If you are new to D3.js and have looked at the various D3.js examples on the web to learn it, you have most probably come across a sequence of selectAll(), data(), enter() and append() statements as shown in Example 1 below.
To a newcomer to D3.js, it is not obvious how these methods work. At least, initially, I did not find it easy to understand their functioning. If you are also having some trouble with understanding these methods and how they work together, I think the examples and explanations below will be helpful. The key to understanding the working of these methods is in the following paragraph in Data Keys section on "The key function also determines the enter and exit selections: the new data for which there is no corresponding key in the old data become the enter selection, and the old data for which there is no corresponding key in the new data become the exit selection.

Four Ways to Slice Obama’s 2013 Budget Proposal - Interactive Feature. d3: scales, and color. D3 scales and interpolation « nelsonslog. D3 has a notion of “scales”, transformations of data from a domain to a range.
Say your data is percentages (0% to 100%) and you want to draw them as bars of length 10-20. You can easily construct a linear scale to map your domain [0,100] to a range [10,20]: If that use of s seems magic, equivalents would be D3 provides various useful scales. Numeric scales like linear, log, and pow, also discrete scales like quantize and ordinal. Tutorial: Introduction to D3. Check out the final result here!
D3 is a brand new visualization framework created by Mike Bostock. It is the successor of the successful great visualization framework Protovis. Tutorial: Line chart in D3. One of the most common visualizations is a line chart.
D3 is not a charting framework, but instead allows you to manipulate the document based on data. That’s what you’re actually doing with D3: adding elements to a document, removing them, updating them, etc. The advantage is that you are much more flexible in creating the visualization that you want. Some may consider it a slight disadvantage that you may do have to do some extra work to get things done. For this tutorial we’re going to create a basic line chart with an x-axis and y-axis, tickmarks and labels. First, we defined some variables: The data variable contains our dataset we want to display as a line chart. Next we append an svg element to our document with the proper width and height, and then we append a g element to this svg element so that all the elements that will be appended to this g element will be grouped together.

First steps in data visualisation using d3.js, by Mike Dewar. This happens to be one of those rare instances where the benefit of hindsight does not make me regret something said flippantly on a panel. I deeply believe that in order to truly change the world we cannot simply "throw analytics at the problem. " To that end, the medical and health industries are perhaps the most primed to be disrupted by data and analytics. To be successful, however, a deep respect for both the methodological and clinical contexts of the data are required.
It is incredibly exciting to be at an organization that is both working within the current framework of health care and data to create new insight for people, but also pushing the envelope with respect to individuals' relationships with their own health. The challenges are technical, sociological, and political; but the potential for innovation that exists in this space comes along very rarely. Bost.ocks.org/mike/d3/workshop/
