Data visualization: newsroom trends, everyday engagements, possible futures
This presentation looks at the production of data visualizations (or dataviz) in newsrooms and audiences’ engagements with dataviz, drawing on two separate research projects. The first is Seeing Data (seeingdata.org), which explored how people make sense of data visualizations, and the second is INDVIL (indvil.org), on which I worked with others to ask: How is data visualization being embedded into newsroom practice? What trends are emerging, and what challenges are arising? On the INDVIL project, we found that dataviz are perceived in diverse ways and deployed for diverse purposes. On Seeing Data, we also found great diversity, this time in how audiences make sense of dataviz. This diversity is important for the future work of dataviz practitioners. I conclude the talk by reflecting on what future data visualization in the news might look like.
