The visualization curriculum can be used either online or on your local computer. You can view and interact with the plots directly in this Jupyter Book. If you want to modify the code, you have a few different options:
To read Python notebooks online using Colab, click the corresponding section in this book, hover over the little rocket ship at the top of the page, and select “Colab” from the menu.
To read Python notebooks locally, follow the instructions below.
Install Altair and a notebook environment. The most recent versions of these notebooks use Altair version 4.
Open the notebooks in your local notebook environment. For example, if you have JupyterLab installed (v1.0 or higher is required), run
jupyter labwithin the directory containing the notebooks.
Depending on your programming environment (and whether or not you have a live internet connection), you may want to specify a particular renderer for Altair.

Thanks to the UW Interactive Data Lab and Arvind Satyanarayan for their valuable input and feedback! Thanks also to the students of UW CSE512 Spring 2019, the first group to use these notebooks within an integrated course curriculum.
