Data Driven Storytelling

Jo Wood and Jason Dykes attended Dagstuhl 16061 on Data Driven Storytelling.

The meeting was coordinated by Sheelagh Carpendale (University of Calgary, CA), Nick Diakopoulos (University of Maryland, US), Nathalie Henry Riche (Microsoft Research, US) and Christophe Hurter (ENAC, FR) - all on the front row. It brought together key researchers in visualization and journalism from academic and industry.

Jo presented his work on the One Year Time Trial including his graphic depiction of Steve Abrahams' year of day and night riding.

Jason presented some ideas on self-expanatory exploratory interfaces, though he was better at producing examples of bad cases of various forms than good ones.
