Shaping Data for News (Lessons from Helicopters and Manatees)

A session at Eyeo Festival 2011

  • Amanda Cox

Monday 27th June, 2011

12:10pm to 1:00pm (CST)

But the same can be said about technical drawings and illustrations, which have deeper histories in the news than some types of data visualization. What lessons should we steal from those disciplines?
