Description

The Wall Street Journal’s Graphics team includes a staff of more than 30 data visualizers, reporters and editors who create interactive graphics and static visuals for millions of readers around the world. This website for the Graphics team collects our most ambitious work on a range of subjects including business, finance, economics, technology and politics.

What makes this project innovative? What was its impact?

Many of these projects push the technical and creative limits of news graphics. The strongest evidence is perhaps found in the variety of topics and approaches: from financial projects (core to the WSJ audience) like an investigation into possible leaks of economic data (http://www.wsj.com/graphics/are-uk-economic-data-leaking/), to election projects like the demographic underpinnings of the electorate in an interactive news app (http://www.wsj.com/graphics/elections/2016/swing-the-swing-states-to-see-if-hillary-clinton-or-donald-trump-will-win/) to entertaining projects like The Rhymes Behind Hamilton (http://graphics.wsj.com/hamilton/). These projects reach millions of WSJ readers and subscribers around the world, influencing perspectives and policy.

Technologies used for this project:

Most data visualization projects use D3.js. The team uses a mix of Python, Node, R and PHP to analyze and present data for these projects.
