Taller 26. Explorando largos volúmenes de documentos
Tablas y spreadsheets son lindos, pero mucha de la información del mundo todavía está guardada en documentos escritos por lenguaje humano. Demostraremos cómo se puede usar Overview, esta herramienta de visualización para navegar miles de páginas de información no estructurada. Jonathan Stray lidera el proyecto Overview para Associated Press. Es un proyecto fundado por Knight News Challenge. Trabajó para The New York Times, Foreign Policy, Wired, China Daily y escribió código para After Effects y Flash.
