This tutorial is a single-page app requiring a modern browser (tested on recent chrome, firefox, IE). Because this tutorial explores zooming, you will need to be using a computer with a wheel mouse. This tutorial can be run live in your browser at the wonderful bl.ocks.org site. If so inclined, you can also clone the tutorial from gist and run it locally on your computer.
