Geojournalism Handbook | Tutorials on environmental reporting

Geojournalism Handbook | Tutorials on environmental reporting | Open Knowledge | 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.

Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles - FINAL

Joint Declaration of Data Citation Principles - FINAL | Open Knowledge | Scoop.it
The Data Citation Principles cover purpose, function and attributes of citations. These principles recognize the dual necessity of creating citation practices that are both human understandable and machine-actionable. These citation principles are not comprehensive recommendations for data stewardship. And, as practices vary across communities and technologies will evolve over time, we do not include recommendations for specific implementations, but encourage communities to develop practices and tools that embody these principles.

European Open Science Cloud | Open Science - Research & Innovation - European Commission

The European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) is envisaged as a stakeholder-driven infrastructure servicing science and innovation. More than a data repository, it will comprise technical elements of connectivity, hardware, repositories, data formats and API’s and it will offer access to a wide range of user-oriented services, data-management, associated HPC analytics environments, stewardship services and, notably, expertise. The EOSC is envisaged as a publicly governed endeavor, but given the scale foreseen and the need for long-term sustainability, parts of it will be realized in collaboration with the industry. High performance analytics environments and services may or may not be part of the EOSC, but will largely develop on top of well-defined and stable EOSC APIs.
