4 Digital Tools to Improve Your Government Coverage
Monday and Tuesday, about 40 journalists are gathering at Poynter to learn how they can use free digital services to cover government more effectively. They'll learn how to share and annotate documents, share data on politicians and lobbyists, understand voting patterns and create data visualizations.
We live blogged four presentations about:
- DocumentCloud: How to make the most of your documents
- Sunlight Foundation: How to use data to cover politicians, lobbyists and campaign contributors
- Patchwork Nation: How to understand your community's voters
- Tableau: How to use data visualization to tell interactive stories
The live blogs are archived below. You also can view a live stream of the seminar through 4 p.m. ET today.
