It’s no novelty that we’re all overflowed by information, I’m having a hard to cope with it and I guess pretty much everyone else is as well.

It turns out that for people like journalists who need to digest it and present it as part of their work, its even more complicated!So its no surprise that journalists are already looking ahead and trying to find ways to cope with this information rise, it seems that one of the tools they found out, is the usual data visualisation techniques already used by other fields to help find patterns and connections among large sets of data. According to the report some newsrooms are even being retooled to be ready for powerfully using data as the new medium.

If you like me are fascinated by Data Visualization, you should take some time to see the video report on Data Visualization by Geoff McGhee:
