Journalists have tried for years to turn often complicated information into comprehensible news articles, graphs, or timelines. Some succeeded more than others.
What makes a difference today is the technology and design skills involved. After the recent Wikileaks scandals and the raise of “open knowledge”, journalists have to acquire new skills to keep up with the trend. Data journalism is often considered as an essential tool for the future of news.
Whether you are a journalist, a designer or simply a data lover, the Data Journalism Blog brings you the latest news on data driven journalism with reviews, how-to guides, interviews and news features.
