One of the key parts of data science, particularly in social science, is visualization. I think our data and analysis is meaningless without being able to communicate it and use it for policy change. This last week I began working for INN’s nerds team, and one of my first tasks has been to work with those member organizations looking to visualize their work.
INN offers members technology services, including help transforming their news and investigative websites with Largo, a WordPress framework INN nerds built for news organizations. So, in addition to recommending data viz tools that are easy to use and interactive, our members also need tools that are WordPress compatible.
