10 Awesome Free Tools To Make Infographics

In terms of blogging success, infographics are far more likely to be shared than your average blog post. This means more eyeballs on your important information, more people rallying for your cause, more backlinks and more visits to your blog.

Maps aren't easy. There is an art to data journalism, and in many cases that art requires an involved and arduous process.

Maps aren't easy

In a recent interview, Simon Rogers, editor of the Guardian’s Datablog and Datastore, discussed many of the issues his team faced when they assembled databases and reports from the WikiLeaks releases. More recently, journalists have been building scads of interactive maps to illustrate news from the disaster in Japan and the political situation in Libya. A recent story at Poynter looking at the importance of such maps also briefly noted their return on investment: “The data-driven interactives take a lot of time and teamwork to produce, but they have the greatest value and generate good traffic and time-spent on the site,” said Juan Thomassie, senior interactive developer at USA Today.

So, hard work yields strong engagement. Warden walked me through the labor-intensive process — one that may very well justify a full cartography team [Ed. duly noted]. Our interview follows.

Things I wish tech journalists would learn

Surveys yield projections that have margins of error that should be disclosed and explained. Survey methods should be disclosed and critically examined. If a survey was conducted in order to generate a press release for marketing purposes, it's probably bullshit. Units in distribution pipelines are not the same as units sold to consumers. Lines outside of stores are a publicity stunt.

Companies like Nielsen and Comscore attempt to report on Web traffic, using samples (not counts) and making statistical projections. R (logiciel) Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre.

10 Best Data Visualization Projects of the Year – 2010

Some were good, and a lot were not so good. More than anything, I noticed a huge wave of big infographics this year. It was amusing at first, but then it kind of got out of hand when online education and insurance sites started to game the system. Although it's died down a lot ever since the new Digg launched. That's what stuck out in my mind initially as I thought about the top projects of the year. One of the major themes for 2010 was using data not just for analysis or business intelligence, but for telling stories.

So here are the top 10 visualization projects of the year, listed from bottom to top. 10. Scott Manley of the Armagh Observatory visualized 30 years of asteroid discoveries. 9. Hannah Fairfield, former editor for The New York Times, and now graphics director for The Washington Post, had a look at gas prices versus miles driven per capita. 8. 7. 6. 5.

5 Ways to find, mix and mash your data. One of the most popular trends in online journalism is taking publicly available data and translating it into visualizations or infographics that readers and viewers can quickly and easily understand. A large percentage of the visualizations you see on the web were built from scratch, which can take a considerable amount of time and effort. The following sites allow you to mash your data in record time. Swivel Swivel features more than 15,000 data sets for users to play with in various categories ranging from Economics to Health to Technology. From the data, users have created hundreds of thousands of graphs, charts and infographics, including the one below that visualizes the amount of rainfall in California since 1870.

How to be a data journalist

I don't mean 'huge' as in fashionable - although it has become that in recent months - but 'huge' as in 'incomprehensibly enormous'. It represents the convergence of a number of fields which are significant in their own right - from investigative research and statistics to design and programming. The idea of combining those skills to tell important stories is powerful - but also intimidating. Who can do all that? The reality is that almost no one is doing all of that, but there are enough different parts of the puzzle for people to easily get involved in, and go from there. 1. 'Finding data' can involve anything from having expert knowledge and contacts to being able to use computer assisted reporting skills or, for some, specific technical skills such as MySQL or Python to gather the data for you. 2. 3.
