thu-editors-dataviz Thursday 4-5:15pm ET Training Your Editor to Edit Your Dataviz In most small newsrooms, there's no graphics team editor — when you hand in a story with a chart, it's your editor's job to vet the chart, plus its title, annotations and text. But editing a news graphic isn't like editing a story, and especially in small newsroom, you might be the person with the most data visualization experience in the room. Your editor might not know what a Marimekko chart is, but probably knows how to vet a story for clarity and flow. There's no inverted triangle or nut graf, but your graphic is telling a story. We'll use this session to create a checklist that guides an editor through questions to ask about a graphic — how well it's communicating its message, and what it could be doing better.
