Visual journalism is experiencing its Golden Age. The expansion of data journalism, flexible, gradual and constant redesigning on Cybermedia and the automation of tasks have favored its development. But beyond a trend transformed into a new journalistic specialization, visualization aims to acquire the status of a univeral language, facilitating consumer information and playing a basic educational role for democratic society.
The open data culture, the commitment to transparency and creation of multidisciplinary teams in which journalists, programmers, web designers, database developers and statistics experts collaborate to transform complex contents into solutions that are attractive, informative and easy to consume, have enriched news production, favoring even exclusives, which in journalism can be a form of life insurance.
This context forms the basis of a monograph that will analyze the consequences of this innovation applied to the field of visualization and specifically how the ability of design applied to data journalism, to the new multimedia narratives and to mobile devices may have an influence on knowledge and the transformation of society, how one can improve web traffic and, ultimately, what are the keys to building more efficient contents. In parallel, it will include the study of success stories which can be approached from multiple standpoints (professional motivation, reception studies, usability, prizes).
