The Guardian: Data Visualisation 101

Wed, 28 Mar 2012

The Guardian have been forging ahead with the whole "data journalism" area (and I guess I should mention their book!!) and have been doing a remarkable job in ferreting out interesting datasets, finding links/stories (and lets face it, The Telegraph's MP expenses story doesn't really get any bigger, and it was all data), developing online visualisations and making the data available. It's a fascinating area and one the deserves to be developed much more extensively.

Two recent columns are worth highlighting: firstly the Open Data Weekend which features a couple of useful presentations and then a slightly longer, more focused, write-up of the online services they use for visualisation. Well worth a read.
