Visualizing news - The future of journalism Cardiff 2013

Visualizing news is considered an apt way to deal with two challenges of modern journalism: disclosing big data and presenting complex information in a way that is easily to comprehend. Newsrooms try their hand at it, and are figuring out how to organize production of information visualizations effectively. This study delves into reported challenges for the production of news visualizations and states, in accordance with executed case studies, that the introduction of information visualization in the media asks for a convergence of journalistic and visual thinking skills, a more iterative news production process and a revised view on the function of news per se.
