The Art and Science of Data-driven Journalism | Open Government

The Art and Science of Data-driven Journalism | Open Government | Data Journalsim | Scoop.it

"Building capacity in data journalism is directly connected to the role the Fourth Estate plays in democracies around the world. There are important stories buried in that explosion of data from government, industry, media, universities, sensors, and devices that aren’t being told because the perspective and skills required to do it properly aren’t widespread in the journalism industry. The need for data-driven journalism comes at a time, unfortunately, when the news organizations that have housed them over the past centuries are contracting."

Open data and open government platforms are critical to data driven journalism. But with local papers closing down, accessing and mainstreaming that data presents a challenge.

Numeracy, or numerical literacy, is at the heart of data journalism. And if you are the kind of person who wants to become more numerate in order to do data journalism (maybe you’re a designer? A student? An inquisitive citizen?), one way to start is by thinking about a horse.

A lack of open information laws, bad — or no — public data and low digital literacy can make it hard to teach journalists to tell data-driven stories."
