ODC BarCamp 2013 - Introduction to Data Journalism

  1. 1. Agenda • What is data journalism? • What makes data journalism different? • Examples of data journalism conducted by news agencies or citizen journalists. • Open data, open data Journalism. • Useful resources on the ODC website. • Who (including journalists) have used resources on ODC? • Data-driven journalism opportunity, January 2014 • Q&A
  2. 2. What Is Data Journalism? “Data Journalism is telling stories that are based on concrete data. Even though it is not something new and journalists have been reporting using data for quite some time, recent technological advancements have made it easier to do data journalism using a plethora of new open source tools available to us all.” – Data Journalism Handbook Read Data journalism at the Guardian: what is it and how do we do it?
  3. 3. What Makes Data Journalism Different? • New possibilities that open up when you combine the traditional ‘nose for news’ and ability to tell a compelling story, with the sheer scale and range of digital information now available. • Possibilities can come at any stage of the journalist’s process. Modeled by Mirko Lorenz, DW See Data Journalism Process
  4. 4. Example Using software to find connections between hundreds of thousands of documents, as The Telegraph did with MPs' expenses. ……………………………………………………… Investigate your MP’s Expenses (The Guardian) Opening up the news gathering process itself, as The Guardian do so successfully in sharing data, context, and questions with their Datablog (also MP’s expenses).
  5. 5. Example Telling a complex story through engaging infographics. Hans Rosling’s spectacular talks on visualizing world poverty with Gapminder, for example, have attracted millions of views across the world. Download Gap Minder World, materials and tools Watch ‘New Insights on Poverty’
  6. 6. Example David McCandless turns complex data sets (like worldwide military spending, media buzz, Facebook status updates) into beautiful, simple diagrams that tease out unseen patterns and connections. Good design, he suggests, is the best way to navigate information glut -- and it may just change the way we see the world. Interactive Infographic Watch his TED talk
  7. 7. Example
  8. 8. Example Using programming to automate the process of gathering and combining information from local government, police, and other civic sources, as Adrian Holovaty did with ChicagoCrime and then EveryBlock (now closed).
