Data Storytelling: The Ultimate Collection of Resources by Zach Gemignani.
From the post:
The hot new concept in data visualization is “data storytelling”; some are calling it the next evolution of visualization (I’m one of them). However, we’re early in the discussion and there are more questions than answers:
- Is data storytelling more than a catchy phrase?
- Where does data storytelling fit into the broader landscape of data exploration, visualization, and presentation?
- How can the traditional tools of storytelling improve how we communicate with data?
- Is it more about story-telling or story-finding?
Many of the bright minds in the data visualization field have started to tackle these questions — and it is something that we’ve been exploring at Juice in our work. Below you’ll find a collection of some of the best blog posts, presentations, research papers, and other resources that take on this topic.
I count ten (10) blog posts, four (4) presentations, five (5) papers and eight (8) tools, examples and other resources.
Get yourself a fresh cup of coffee. You are going to be here a while.
PS: I don’t know that “data storytelling” is new or if the last century or so suffered a real drought in “data storytelling.”
Medieval cathedrals were exercises in storytelling but a modern/literate audience fails to appreciate them as designed.
