Data Journalism. How does the Los Angeles Times work with Data?

Lecture by Ben Welsh

For years now, data journalism has claimed its place within the editorial offices of many media outlets in the United States, Great Britain and Latin America. This is a good opportunity to talk about how this journey was made by the Los Angeles Times data journalism team: from how the Data Desk began to how it is structured, focusing particularly on specific stories, particularly in the city of Los Angeles, and looking at the way they have approached different cases (election results, crime alerts in L.A. neighbourhoods, etc) that have earned them international recognition.
