LinkLog: Data Visualization Success Hinges on Solid Storytelling Skills

This blog, btw, was not written by me (except this para). I wanted to see what happens when you rescoop an article to your blog. Now I know. It is a story worth reading. So to do a successful visualization you need the combination of two skills ¬†one to visualize the data and the other to tell a powerful story about it. There are several sources that do this well. Economist is one. Newyork Times is another. Pew Research Center is my favorite. They combine the visualization with a few compelling stories. It is the new trend in journalism, aptly named “Data Journalism”.
