The Scottish Scoundrel Who Changed How We See Data A 1824 Playfair line graph, illustrating of how bread and stock prices are affected by war. (Image: William Playfair/Public Domain) As news events churn up a flood of new information, many turn to charts to absorb it. Interactive: Ten years of war The war in Afghanistan - the longest in American history - has changed markedly since US president Barack Obama took office in January 2009. Troop levels remained roughly constant under his predecessor, former president George Bush, with around 30,000 American troops deployed in Afghanistan; the number of coalition military deaths also remained bracketed between 150 and 300. 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.

In particular, this movie demonstrates the patterns of 300.000 Norwegians moving house, by cross-referencing the tax records of about 4 million individual Norwegians from 2006 and 2007. In the movie, the data is filtered by paramaters like yearly income or age, and a distinction is made between 'incoming' (red) and 'outgoing' (blue) citizens. As a result, one can perceive that elderly people generally move over relatively short distances, while high-earners tend to move out of the big cities to the shores. Interestingly, in Norway all the incomes and fortunes of all tax paying individuals are made public every year, which consists of the full name, year of birth, postal code and their attendant financial data. Watch the movie below.

Power BI Launched this week in beta mode, Microsoft's Power BI allows you to export live-updating visualizations to the web. 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.
