At the heart of journalism is the ability to find and tell important stories in a compelling way. In a world where data makes up an ever more important part of our lives, this session explores how journalists are using data to:
- uncover and explore stories of international importance,
- analyse the behaviour of important institutions in new ways,
- explain complex events to the general public.

Juliette O’Brien is a free-lance digital journalist and communications consultant. She produces and manages the covid19data.com.au site. She is the author of a best-selling memoir, This Is Gail.

Felippe Rodrigues is a data reporter at Stuff focusing on data visualization and content automation. Most of his days are spent looking at JavaScript or Python code. Felippe has come to New Zealand from Brazil through the way of Boston, Massachusetts.

Inga Ting is a data journalist with ABC News, specialising in data-driven investigations and visual storytelling with numbers. She has been shortlisted twice for Best Portfolio at the international Data Journalism Awards and recently picked up two prizes at the London-based Information is Beautiful Awards. Locally, her work has been recognised at the Citi Journalism Awards, the Quills, the Kennedy awards and the Human Rights Media Awards. Before joining Australia's public broadcaster she was a data journalist at The Sydney Morning Herald.

Hamish Boland-Rudder is the Online Editor for the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. During his time with ICIJ working both from Washington, D.C. and Sydney, he has worked on all ICIJ’s major data-driven projects, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Panama Papers, as well as recent investigations including Luanda Leaks, China Cables and the Implant Files. He was previously a reporter and online producer with The Canberra Times, and has reported for The Sydney Morning Herald, The Korea Herald and more.

I subscribe to a couple of sites/e-newsletters that regularly publish interesting data visualizations, which is a close relative of data journalism. Check em out:

Data visualizations formed an essential part of our knowledge management activities at ETS. We started out with sending people to Tufte and supported a community of practice of data visualizers. I have followed Flowing Data  https://flowingdata.com/
for years and one of the advantages of that site is the ability to receive more specialized instruction if desired.

Fascinating, Matt
I need to spend more time watching the third one from Inga. It's got some really creative data visuals!
Thanks for sharing. And I can't help but wonder how useful it would be to combine the power of videos with that of data visualization.

Thanks

Hello all - happy to re-engage in SIKM once again!

By "data journalism" do you mean something similar to "data storytelling" - there is quite a bit of material out there on the topic of "data storytelling" (data anything, along with analytics, is my core area of focus lately).

Just seeking brief clarification here. Happy to help!

Christopher,

Data journalism is specifically the use of the data for journalism purposes. It definitely overlaps with Data Storytelling. But it's also means of finding insights in the first place (e.g. Hamish's presentation).

Regards,

Matt

Can you give an example Matt?  Your definition basically uses the same words that are being defined as the definition which doesn't really help....murray
