My Favorite Data Visualization and Dataset Resources

I wanted to put together a quick list of my favorite datasets and visualization resources! When I'm looking for a sample project, I use these for inspiration. I also use them for teaching! Thought they could be helpful for someone else too.


Data Sets

I asked about new ones on twitter a while ago, and got some of these from there! I linked the Tweet if you're interested in seeing more!

A while back I stumbled upon Sheetsee.js which allows you to connect Google Sheets to a website and use the data in there for Visualization.


It worked pretty well with D3.js
