A succinct aggregation of articles on the rise of data-based journalism (using data as the story rather than a means to collaborate a preexisting story), this handbook offers an insight into some newer internet based journalism firms (Like The Guardian) and how Data Journalism ushered them into relevance.
Licenciado con Creative Commons, The Data Journalism Handbook existe gracias a una gran cantidad de contribuidores. El libro está fuertemente basado en publicaciones periodisticas basadas en datos, introduce al concepto de Data Journalism, explica su importancia y que tener en cuenta a la hora de realizar un trabajo de ese tipo, adjunta también que herramientas estan disponibles para hacerlo.
A great starting point with examples & practical tips. Don't stop at this book (v. 1.0)—jump in and start exploring to truly reap the benefits of the knowledge and experience collected here.

Inspirational stories, great ideas, good guide to resources. Lacks the how-to aspect of, say, Visualize This (which I recommend), but still very good.
