Learn how to mine disparate sources of data to pierce the federally-imposed secrecy surrounding crime guns. You'll learn how to combine data sets to trace guns from store counter to crime scene, how to tap into a gunfire detection system used by many agencies that logs the latitude and longitude of gunshots, and more. You'll also learn how programming tools can be used to scrape data -- in this case from a gun trading website -- that revealed the way large numbers of guns change hands with no background checks.

This presentation is best suited for: Journalists with a range of data analysis skills -- from spreadsheets to programming -- who want to break new ground in gun coverage.
