Since Obama took office, both the American "footprint" and the level of violence have incresed sharply. Troop levels by month The "surge" announced by Obama in late 2009 was actually the second of his presidency.

At the time, there were only a handful of other global publications that were doing graphical work on a similar level. The shortlist included The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Chicago Tribune and South Florida’s The Sun Sentinel. “He always understood that the limits of the discipline were in our capacity to imagine new story forms that combined words, audio, data, diagrams and interaction. It's a lesson I've never let go of,” said Xaquín González Veira, who worked with Cairo at El Mundo and is now the Editor of Guardian Visuals at The Guardian. This approach proved its value in explaining such complex, multilayered stories as the 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City and later the 2004 bombings in Madrid. As news graphics started winning design prizes like the Malofiej, many skeptics were silenced. “The work was talking for itself,” Cairo said. Power BI. Launched this week in beta mode, Microsoft's Power BI allows you to export live-updating visualizations to the web.

Power BI

Power BI is Microsoft's answer to Tableau - providing users with a suite of tools to analyze data, visually organize insights and, as of this week, share them on the web. For journalists who aren't used to working with data, the suite offers an useful introductory platform to begin integrating data-driven insights into their stories. For example, one cool feature of the suite is that users can derive insights from data using natural language queries. Additionally, once you start typing, Power BI offers predictive suggestions based on your data's schema, as well as the best visualizations to represent your query. As well as a standard set of visualizations, develops can create .pbviz files to customize these, and Microsoft offers a free gallery of tested user generated visualizations for less advanced users.
