Geojournalism Handbook | Tutorials on environmental reporting

Geojournalism Handbook | Tutorials on environmental reporting | Education | Scoop.it

The story of this handbook starts with a group of environmental journalists from different countries who were covering conferences like Copenhagen in 2009 and felt that a new approach for the issue was needed. Editors and the public seemed to have lost their interest with a hunch of disappointment in face of so many failures on environmental politics.

 

At same time, measurements by satellites and researchers on the ground have never stopped producing relevant information for our everyday life. Inspired by the freshness of the data journalism movement, we realize there was space for those who deal with the geodata and that using principles of design and data visualization could remake the bridge to the public’s mind.

 

This handbook is based on an experience of many of these professionals on building their platforms of information both on prestigious media outlets and as independent knowledge brokers. The project is above all and attempt to increase the number of professionals in journalism familiarized with the geodata and capable of coordinate initiatives of interactive visualizations.
