Dot density maps may seem to be difficult to build, especially for those taking their very first steps in interactive data visualization development. But the truth is, they are not.

Shachee Swadia, a data designer and storyteller, made a compelling tutorial showing how to create a beautiful interactive JavaScript-based dot map in four steps.

To illustrate the process, in the article, she is visualizing data about all shipping ports across the world, first making a basic map in just a few lines of code and then improving it in several more.

Check out the JS dot map tutorial 🔥
