Get a complete grounding in the exciting visual world of Canvas and HTML5 using this recipe-packed cookbook. Learn to create charts and graphs, draw complex shapes, add interactivity, work with Google maps, and much more.
Build interactive visualizations of data from scratch with integrated animations and events
Draw with canvas and other html5 elements that improve your ability to draw directly in the browser
Work and improve existing 3rd party charting solutions such as Google Maps
Our goal is that by the end of this book you will have a strong foundation; knowing when to create a chart on your own from scratch and when it would be a good idea to depend on other APIs.
We finish our book in our last two chapters exploring Google maps and integrating everything we learnt into a full project.
