Here’s the next round of VR journalism innovation ideas (and the ideas for the tools to make it happen) » Nieman Journalism Lab
The New York Times made a flourishing push into AR for the PyeongChang Olympics earlier this year and has followed up with immersive storytelling from Iceland to Antarctica to a fashion show runway to your own home. NBC News built out a 12-person experimental video unit last summer to experiment with VR and mixed reality. But one 2017 report also pointed out that news organizations are hesitant to invest in the technology and struggle finding compelling content to use it on.

How the Weather Channel Made That Insane Hurricane Florence Storm Surge Animation
But as impressive as those previous demonstrations were, they lacked the immersiveness and fidelity that Thursday’s Hurricane Florence display provided. That’s both because of the wrap-around green screen, which helps completely surround Navarro, and the immediacy of the data the graphic is based on.
“The National Hurricane Center puts out a live feed of their inundation data, telling at specific points where they identify how high the water level will be. We ingest that data, and that allows us to paint pictures, if you will,” says Potts. “Prior to that, we imagined what the different environments could be. You see the typical American street corner; we have others that we’re working on. We rapidly operationalized this one so that we could get this out and make sure we had the right safety messages out for this storm.”

How to spot misleading crime reporting - Full Fact
You may have heard criticism of police recorded crime statistics, with some saying that they should never be used, in favour of Crime Survey figures. Some of the criticism is valid, and in 2014 police recorded crime statistics lost their “national statistic” badge , a quality hallmark, while the Crime Survey statistics are still classified as such.
However that doesn’t mean that police recorded figures are useless. They just need to be used appropriately, and in line with guidance from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) which publishes the data. Similarly, the Crime Survey figures also have limits—for example data on fraud and computer misuse has only recently started to be regarded as reliable, and so the ONS says long term trends about these crime types can’t be made yet.

Celebrating 10 years of datajournalism
Curley understood that a website was not a clone of a newspaper on a screen. He understood that you could serve information and content to different audiences much more effectively than in print. He offered users free email and wallpapers (this was 2002!) and pioneered trends that proved more long-lasting. He built a database of all records for the local sports teams, going back to their creation in the late 19th century. After every game, his team would add new statistics on each players3. He also pioneered new formats, such as interactive maps. In 2004, for the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka decision, which declared segregation in schools illegal in the United States, the Journal published an interactive map, where users could click on dots to see more information4. It sounds very unremarkable, until you realize that Google Maps did not even exist at the time (it was launched in 2005)5.

Measuring the unmeasured with data
On top of numerous interviews, Adams used a series of data sets to show that the situation she was describing did not concern just one institution or one region, but the whole of the country, and that the failings were caused by the business practices of a company, in this case UHS. By contrast, 19th-century Bly never once used any statistic to make her case. More strikingly, in the heated exchanges that followed the publication of Bly’s investigation, her adversaries did not bring in data either, preferring to focus on details of her stay at the asylum.3

Quick-R: Tree-Based Models
Recursive partitioning is a fundamental tool in data mining. It helps us explore the stucture of a set of data, while developing easy to visualize decision rules for predicting a categorical (classification tree) or continuous (regression tree) outcome. This section briefly describes CART modeling, conditional inference trees, and random forests.

Audience engagement could be key to a more satisfied newsroom: 4 takeaways to consider | RJI
In a recent survey of more than 100 journalists, I found that journalists are more satisfied and find their work more meaningful and significant when they practiced audience engagement, which I defined as using social media and analytics, as part of their job.

BBC Blogs - Academy - iOS 12: Plenty of potential for mobile journalists, but it may take time
The iPhone camera still takes photos that are 4:3 and not 16:9 to match video and which would fit widescreen TVs.
The video camera still lacks an option to shoot at 25 frames per second (fps), which is the standard for TV broadcast in the UK, rather than 30 or 60 fps, which are the American standards. And there’s no way to monitor the audio while recording on the Voice Memos app.

Why a journalist should use GIS – Views from the leading experts – Richard Bedford
Doig as a journalist dug into it [the data] and he found that there was negligence on the part of the government to allow developers to create shoddy construction that was very vulnerable to the conditions of the hurricane that was not obvious until it was mapped and it was not obvious until the two data layers of wind speed and damage assessment were overlaid on top of one another,”  he said.

How We Mapped 1.3m Data Points Using Mapbox - Features - Source: An OpenNews project
We set the interpolation process running in QGIS on a Mac Pro and, a mere 11 days later, found ourselves the proud owners of a raster 250m2 grid layer covering the full extent of Great Britain, with the shade of each cell representing the mean download speed of the postcode centroids falling within it. Equipped with the raster and a beautiful red-yellow colour ramp developed by interactive designer Caroline Nevitt, we could start work on the interactive map.
