How can we convey the sheer scale of covid-19’s impact? This is something many data practitioners have had to grapple with over the last year. 

This data sonification from Jamie Whyte, is a fresh approach, showing the daily number of cases in the UK, since the start of the pandemic. It’s abstract, of course, and yet manages to feel quite eerie.

The New York Timesfront page as the US approached half a million coronavirus generated quite a bit of discussion in dataviz circles. Francis Gagnon has written a well-reasoned critique, arguing that 500,000 dots is too many. 

From coronavirus to climate change: The Guardian’s coal tracker, which tracks the daily share of Britain’s power generated by coal, is such a simple yet effective visualization.

Events and more

It’s nearly time for NICAR, which will be held digitally this year between 3-5 March. If you haven’t signed up, the hashtag alone (#NICAR21) tends to be valuable.

For Swedish journalists, there’s a digital workshop series coming up exploring how to find data on public procurement. The first part is held on 10 March. 

Finally, it’s time to submit grant applications for Journalismfund.eu’s European cross-border grants programme. There’s €200,000 available and applications are due by 11 March.
