Data Visualization in Journalism

Data visualization has become cheaper and more applicable to fields other than science and math. Data visualization is no longer a pie chart or bar graph that roughly explains relationships and data sets. It is now at the level of sophistication where journalists and teachersĀ use it to tell stories and immerse the viewer in the data. Data visualization shows the story rather than telling it. In our presentation we explain what Data visualization is and why it’s important to journalism and provide current examples.
