KTVB-Boise investigative reporter Jamie Grey explains how to get started on data projects, offering story ideas and tips for visualizing data on air. She walks through several examples including:

  • Finding stories in airport and flight data
  • Analyzing interstate crash data using basic Excel techniques
  • Charting population change using driver’s license data
  • Using county jail data to determine the cost of recidivism
  • Turning quick-hit stories using post-election and bridge data

Grey’s presentation is designed for broadcast journalists, but would be good for anyone looking to get started in data journalism.
