#Tip of the day from Journalism.co.uk – a flow chart for gathering data

September 7th, 2011Posted by in Data, Top tips for journalists

Journalism lecturer Paul Bradshaw has put together a flow chart – sketched out on a long drive to Croatia, apparently – designed to help journalists through the often convoluted process of gathering data.

Paul writes:

It aims to help those doing data journalism identify how best to get hold of and deal with data by asking a series of questions about the information you want to compile and making suggestions on ways both to get hold of it and tools to then get it into a state which makes it easier to ask questions.
