Covering Miami’s Rising Seas: Sensors, Public Data & Politics | Mediashift | PBS

Covering Miami’s Rising Seas: Sensors, Public Data & Politics | Mediashift | PBS | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it
Over the “past half-century,” The Washington Post reported in October, “average sea levels in South Florida have risen by 4 to 6 inches, an extensively documented increase that accelerated since the early 1990s.” And based on data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, easily one of the most well-respected reports on climate change, by 2100, the world’s sea levels will have risen by two feet more than current levels.

The effects on Miami, where my university is based, will be devastating, a BusinessWeek story reports.

Scientists and government leaders say that they can only slow the effects, which include the silent rise of sea water that continues to push through porous limestone upon which Miami and South Florida are built.

The immediate problem, though, is that civic and economic leaders in South Florida aren’t talking about what’s ahead for us, besides the continued potential for luxury condo business and high-priced living. One might think sea level rise would be a good story for local press, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

A great collection of data visualisation tools, categorised by the characteristics of the data you want to show.

Rappresentare: raccontare la realtà in modo tale da attrarre in modo efficace l'attenzione del nostro interlocutore/lettore. In una società iperconnessa e dialogica, fondamentale competenza.

Cori Zuppo's curator insight, May 18, 2014 10:21 AM

The Data Visualization Catalogue is a powerful tool to guide selection of data visualization methodologies. I am looking forward to incorporating this resource into my courses wherever possible.

Our job as journalists is to inform the public. By using emotion and empathy, games allow us to inform readers in a new way—and one in which they both remember and understand.

Immersion journalists discuss their craft

Immersion journalists discuss their craft | Writing, Research, Applied Thinking and Applied Theory: Solutions with Interesting Implications, Problem Solving, Teaching and Research driven solutions | Scoop.it

Immersion journalism is about showing, not telling. Talking about “immersion journalism” rather than relaying stories of its execution equates to writing about the framework of Colombian drug trafficking rather than writing the narrative of one specific drug cartel—and we all know what makes a better story. Panelists Raffi Khatchadourian, Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, George Packer, and Sarah Stillman—without attempting to flatten immersion journalism into a box—provided great insight into its philosophy and practice. As immersion journalism is about directly and intimately engaging with its subject, the panelists told personal stories of their immersive journalistic experiences without some stolid, distancing interpretation.

Karen B Wehner's curator insight, April 29, 2014 2:26 PM

Because epistemology is a time-honored pastime of transmedia folk. And cross-media folk. And multimedia folk....

 

Kevin Moloney:  "I’ve written elsewhere that we’re living through a Cambrian Explosion in the ecology of media. [...]  And with this explosion has come a diversity of terms to describe new creations and new arrangements. Multimedia? Crossmedia? Transmedia? What is the difference? I get that question a lot, and it’s a good one."
