Managing large amounts of data is one of the key skills of the modern, digitally minded journalist. So how do top data-driven journalists collate, analyse and present vast amounts of facts and figures in interactive graphics, searchable databases and fascinating charts?
Experts confirmed so far include:
- Simon Rogers, news editor (data) at the Guardian
and editor of Guardian.co.uk's Datablog. Simon played a key role in turning some of the 90,000 documents given to Wikileaks into graphics and interactive charts. Read this fascinating article
by Simon on how he did it.
- David McCandless, writer, designer and author of Information is Beautiful, which "explores the potential of data visualisation as a new direction for journalists and storytelling".
- Julian Burgess, programmer and editorial developer at the Times, who will talk about using data in a practical newsroom environment and how journalists can add a real-time dimension to their work.
- Michael Blastland, journalist and creator of BBC Radio 4's More or Less programme. Michael will talk about how to use official sources and data and make sure you're getting the real story behind the figures.
