On uncertainty

We have often talked about measuring and visualizing uncertainty in this newsletter. Now data documentaries maker Neil Halloran has made a 24 minutes documentary on climate science and uncertainty that we can only urge you to watch, as he sums it up better than we ever could.
The datasets, reports, articles, data visualizations and all the other content we create are released for free. We openly encourage journalists from around Europe to reuse them or build upon them in original ways for their own stories. That’s why the default license for the content published by the European Data Journalism Network is CC BY 4.0 – this means that you are free to share, transform, and build upon our materials for any purpose.

Dynamic localization

The Pudding takes the dynamically localized article format one step further, as they try to go beyond simply replacing numbers, and find local examples of the article's main topic. The geolocating seems to be purely IP based, and may thus end up in the wrong place; and there are certainly some oddities in the automatically chosen comparison areas (Sydney vs Nouméa, New Caledonia?!), but the overall experience is still surprisingly good.

Auditing for inclusive visualizations

Chartability is a new auditing system for accessible visualizations. This is great news, because resources are often put where results can be measured, and a solid auditing tool can really help to make something a priority (just think about all hours spent making web sites pass Lighthouse, or the W3C validator, and what not!) Chartability is best explained by Frank Elavsky in this Twitter thread:
