Touring examples of data visualization By Tom Geller

Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data

Drupal's built-in data presentation tools offer several ways for web designers to clearly and attractively package their data. In Drupal 6: Online Presentation of Data, Tom Geller explains how Drupal handles data so users can set up intelligent structures and implement them with Drupal's Content Construction Kit. Tom also shows how a data-driven web site can improve its interactivity by using geographic data to connect real-world addresses to maps. Exercise files accompany the course.

Topics include:

Importing and manipulating data in Drupal

 

  • Presenting date-formatted information in calendars
  • Understanding Drupal's data-query interface, "Views"
  • Improving view appearances with grid, list, and table formatting
  • Importing, exporting, and cloning views
  • Extending views with arguments and relationships

In Drupal 6 Online Presentation of Data, I'll teach you how to structure your information and how to present it in both charts and maps. I'll describe how Drupal handles data, how you can set up intelligent data structures and how to implement them in Drupal using the Content Construction Kit or CCK and you will get a step-by-step guide to Drupal's data query interface called Views.
