ISOJ: Periodistas necesitan aprender visualización de datos y diseño de infografías para complementar sus historias | journalism based in data | Scoop.it

Los periodistas no son tan buenos, como ellos creen, en la presentación de datos y, las escuelas de periodismo tienen que hacer más para enseñar la teoría y las habilidades necesarias para que una presentación de calidad vaya acompañada de un mensaje de calidad.

Data Journalism + Personal Storytelling = Brave New World?

Data Journalism + Personal Storytelling = Brave New World? | journalism based in data | Scoop.it

"In the world of storytelling, words and numbers have a complicated relationship.

 

When I was an Americorps*VISTA volunteer at the Center for Digital Storytelling, I was privileged enough to bear witness to hundreds of stories. Sitting in that circle and listening to folks from all walks of life share of themselves and their experiences never got old and, when my time at CDS came to an end, I carried so many of those stories with me into the world."

Open data journalism: creating engaging stories...

Open data journalism: creating engaging stories... | journalism based in data | Scoop.it

Data is everywhere: from governments publishing billions of bytes of the stuff, to visual artists creating new concepts of the world through to companies building businesses on the back of it.

At the same time, journalism has undergone a transformation; it's not that long ago that the only way to get a story published by a major news organisation involved years of training and interning and generally slaving away until you get noticed and published.

These are the days of open journalism, reporters who can use the power of the web can produce stronger, better stories. Open journalism involves the person reading and commenting on the story as much as the original reporter, and with the power to shape and influence the news they see in front of them.

But how does that connect to data journalism? These are two segments of the same pie chart - and for data journalism to develop beyond just being the latest fad, it has to engage and involve the people reading the news as well as creating it...

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World

6 Ways Data Journalism is Making Sense of the World | journalism based in data | Scoop.it

When I wrote that Radar was investigating data journalism and asked for your favorite examples of good work, we heard back from around the world.

I received emails from Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Canada and Italy that featured data visualization, explored the role of data in government accountability, and shared how open data can revolutionize environmental reporting...

 

It was instructive to learn more about the work of two large media organizations, the Los Angeles Times and Canada’s Global News, which have been building their capacity to practice data journalism. The other international perspectives in my inbox and tweet stream, however, were a reminder that big-city newsrooms that can afford teams of programmers and designers aren’t the only players here.acts of data journalism by small teams or individuals aren’t just plausible, they’re happening — from Italy to Brazil to Africa.

 

That doesn’t mean that the news application teams at NPR, The Guardian, ProPublica or the New York Times aren’t setting the pace for data journalism when it comes to cutting edge work — far from it — but the tools and techniques to make something worthwhile are being democratized.

That’s possible in no small part because of the trend toward open source tools and social coding I’m seeing online, from Open Street Map to more open elections...

An interesting overall look at the state of data journalism on varying scales, as explored through the examination of case studies, resources and applications.

Of particular interest is the role of open data in generating content, and how that may affect the future of data visualization.

Still, the numerous online links provided within the article offer a substantial number of references on a broad range of topics that pertain to data journalism and visualization.

The Hidden Biases in Big Data | Harvard Business Review

The Hidden Biases in Big Data | Harvard Business Review | journalism based in data | Scoop.it

This looks to be the year that we reach peak big data hype. From wildly popular big data conferences to columns in major newspapers, the business and science worlds are focused on how large datasets can give insight on previously intractable challenges. The hype becomes problematic when it leads to what I call "data fundamentalism," the notion that correlation always indicates causation, and that massive data sets and predictive analytics always reflect objective truth. Former Wired editor-in-chief Chris Anderson embraced this idea in his comment, "with enough data, the numbers speak for themselves." But can big data really deliver on that promise? Can numbers actually speak for themselves?

 

Sadly, they can't. Data and data sets are not objective; they are creations of human design. We give numbers their voice, draw inferences from them, and define their meaning through our interpretations. Hidden biases in both the collection and analysis stages present considerable risks, and are as important to the big-data equation as the numbers themselves.

Insight Narrator's comment, April 15, 2013 7:30 AM
We often talk about researchers needing to look towards journalism to develop better skills in storytelling, but the reverse is also true, with more journalists looking to build their analytical skills to help them curate and synthesize data sources to generate robust evidence based stories in a data driven age.

Can anyone be a data journalist?Simon Rogers on what we can learn from a 1977 diagram...

Now is the time to examine this - in May 2010, we published this piece on how reporters would soon be flooded with a "tsunami of data". Two years on and data journalism is part of the fabric of what we, and many other news organisations do. What is it? I would say data journalism is such a wide range now of styles - from visualisation to long form articles. The key thing they have in common is that they're based on numbers and statistics - and that they should aim to get a 'story' from that data. The ultimate display of that story, be it words or graphics, is irrelevant, I think - it's more about the process...
