Turning Civic Information Into Civic Narrative

Every day we have increasing access to rich data sets that contain information about politics, our governments and the world around us. Journalists and media makers play an important role in providing contextual information and turning data into a narrative that people can understand. This session will explore efforts to collect, standardize and publish civic data, and how journalists can leverage each other’s work to tell the most important stories.
