What’s the global data journalism community tweeting about this week?


Our NodeXL #ddj mapping from Sept 17 to 23 finds numerous data to map, from @NatGeo‘s migration of billions of birds to @morgenpost‘s Berlin schools and @A24COM‘s internet access in Argentina. There’s also @dhanalytics‘ tips on improving data tables and @mcrosasb on two useful chatbots.

He writes about the challenges and solutions in dealing with the cartography, geographic processing, composition and effects, labelling, animations, data acquisition and more.
