The three day ICFJ Data Journalism workshop in Delhi held between 5th to 7th September 2014 culminated in all the participants being divided into groups to work on real life stories using freshly learnt techniques in data scraping, cleaning and visualization. Ideas ranged from Narendra Modi’s popularity on Twitter to changing pattern of media ownership; from transformation of India into a cashless economy to the changing definition of middle class in India.
Here are examples of some of the work that various teams produced at the end of the workshop.
Complaints against police (An Infographic on statistics on complaints against police and conviction rates)
Cashless in India (A data-based story on how India is turning to electronic transactions)
Class Calculator (A tool to calculate which economic category a consumer belongs based on consumption pattern)
