D3.js is a JavaScript library for producing dynamic, interactive data visualizations in Web browsers, using the widely implemented SVG, HTML5, and CSS standards. The CData API Server enables you to generate REST APIs for 80+ data sources, including both on-premises and cloud-based databases. This article walks through setting up the CData API Server to create a REST…

I have used D3 in concert with C3 to create a data visualization front end to a data warehouse.  D3 has a ton of features but is difficult to use out of the box for the novice user.  The C3 library puts a layer of smarts on top of D3 making it much easier to get started in graphic visualizations.  I’ve also used CData product to get an ODBC connection to Google sheets in order to analyze and transfer results from a Google form survey to a data warehouse.  CData products are very good just be willing to pay for that excellence.

This article is a good read because it combines the two to assemble a REST service and use it to provide the data feed to D3.
