We Visualize News
What is Data Journalism?
Getting Data
We seek out data from a variety of organizations, both public and private. When data is not readily available, we request it. When there is no data, we create it.
Analyzing Data
We look at the data from different angles, analyze it, see trends, observe proportion and relationships. We discover stories.
Visualizing Data
Visualization provides a unique perspective on data.
We make information colourful  by visualizing stories using a variety of tools.
We visualize each story using a tool that is better than others. The trick is to choose the right one.
Share/Make it public
We publish these visualizations on our website, make them freely available for others to use, share them with you, and hope you share them with others.
