The fifth data journalism session will be devoted to analyzing the real situation of data journalism in Spain's media. To do so, first there will be a panel moderated by Antonio Delgado to analyze the treatment given to the 2012 budget visualization in various media. Secondly, there will be a roundtable moderated by Mario Tascón, where representatives from various media will explain what they are doing currently.
17:35h: Visualization of 2012 general budget
National general budgets offer a true portrait of governments’ priorities, since they show what political actions are planned for each year. The problem is that, although they are made public, the majority of citizens are incapable of understanding them. However, if they are properly visualized, in a glance, we can compare the amounts assigned to each area. The question is: What is the best way to visualize this data?
Moderator: Antonio Delgado
19:00h: Data journalism in Spanish media: reality and needs
In Spain, one infrequently finds work done using data journalism, although it is becoming increasingly common in our media.
In the Data Journalism group, we have already examined existing obstacles in Spain to finding data to work with although we have also seen that there are solutions and shortcuts to finding them.
Additional questions arise: Are Spanish media interested in this discipline? What are they doing? And if they are doing nothing, why?Moderator: Mario Tascón
