Since the beginning of the Russia-Ukraine War, journalists have witnessed, verified and reported on atrocities across the country, remotely and in the field. But for data journalists looking to delve deeper into the data and find new sources, understanding data collection and where it comes from is essential.
To help journalists meet the challenge, we spoke with guests from data journalism and the humanitarian field with experience using data to cover the war:
– Peter Bodnar, data journalist at Texty.ua
– Dada Lyndell, data journalist at The Insider
– Karina Shedrofsky, head of research at OCCRP
– Claudia Manili, senior data analyst from ACAPS.org
