This week we have seen new and very interesting #ddj projects. This is our selection we believe may interest you. 

This article made by the NYT  is a great example of how a visualization can change a story for the readers... even if its not an interactive. 

The people at ComputerWorld designed this list with more than 22 different free tools to design #dataviz and do some data analysis.

How do you know if you are doing good #ddj? What indicators are good to keep in mind? What practices should you avoid? These are the advice of 45 journalists that gathered at the Data Journalism Unconference 2017, organized by the BBC.


How can you understand the political changes in the UK? This #dataviz  perfectly explains why Teresa May was defeated and why there were so drastic changes. 

FastCompany developed this piece which analyses the migratory movements since the year 2000. Cool graphics that compliment an interesting text.

Have you ever wondered where to find reliable datasets that you can use to do #ddj? Quartz data editor Chris Groskopf has just published a cured list with links to online sites where you can find data published by trusted sources.
