Flourish is a new platform for data visualization and storytelling. It enables journalists to easily produce and publish high-end graphics, maps, explainers, steppers and other outputs from flexible templates. An ever-growing library of open-source templates is available, but developers can also make their own public or private templates using the Flourish SDK and standard technologies such as D3, SVG and WebGL. Flourish was created by multi-award-winning visualization studio Kiln; beta partners include the BBC, Guardian and FT. This event gives an overview of the platform and provides NICAR attendees with exclusive early access to the website and SDK.
