Data Journalism and the Rise of Green Crime
Data journalists from Oxpeckers Investigative Environmental Journalism will highlight several of the unit’s pioneering geo-journalism tools (#WildEye, #MineAlert, Rhino Court Cases and ClimaTracker) to demonstrate how journalists can incorporate environmental data into their work. We will showcase successful examples from reporters in Asia, Europe and Africa, and teach participants how to work with data. This will include basic practical training on identifying trends, patterns and outliers, as well as how to spot a good story angle within a dataset.
During this training, participants will learn:
● How Oxpeckers tools work and how to use them;
● How to work with data;
● How to identify stories in a dataset;
● How to use data in an investigation, from conception to publication.
