#34 Data Journalism & Interactive Visualization DataFramed

    • Technology

Hugo speaks with Amber Thomas about data journalism, interactive visualization and data storytelling. Amber is a journalist-engineer at The Pudding, which is a collection of data-driven, visual essays. We’ll discuss the ins and outs of what it takes to tell interactive journalistic stories using data visualization and, in the process, we’ll find out what it takes to be successful at data journalism, the trade-off between being being a generalist and specialist and much more. We’ll explore these issues by focusing on several case studies, including a piece that Amber worked on late last year called “How far is too far? An analysis of driving times to abortion clinics in the US.”
