Do you have a database full of JSON objects crying out for visual analysis? In this talk we will describe the different visualization concepts that apply to objects and showcase open source technologies that provide that capability (for free) and give you the basic tools you need to get started. Topics covered will include: - A quick overview of JSON objects (properties, ways to reference other objects, etc.); - Simple examples of working with JSON via JavaScript; - How to turn JSON documents into visual feasts using tools like the GoogleMaps API and D3.js library.
