Another damned panda graphic



All the animals born at the zoo that nobody cares about because they are not a Panda. I’d defend this as a bad idea well executed, but really I just want to move on and forget about it. I will not be pigeonholed as the damned Panda guy.

"In order to better understand how Internet users view and understand infographics, we asked Dr. Ruth Rosenholtz, the Principal Research Scientist at the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. She holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and leads a research team that studies human vision, including visual search, peripheral vision, perceptual organization, and the impact of visual clutter on task performance. Rosenholtz and her team have developed a process that reveals how the human brain uses peripheral vision to view images."

"So, what is data journalism? Ask a hundred data journalists and you will get a hundred different responses. This is my three-part take: 1) Data journalism is about using numbers to tell the best story possible. It is not about maths, or drawing charts or even writing code. It is about telling stories first and foremost – the maths and the charts and the code are all in service to that 2) You’re no longer thinking solely about words. Instead this is about the best possible way to tell that story. 3) The techniques of data journalism change all the time but they are marked out by an abundance of increasingly more accessible tools that allow sophisticated manipulation and analysis of data"
