Data means much more than a change in a technology, it represents a structural transformation about how we practice our latest journalism trends. Good interpretation of data can reveal news story’s shape in order to get tangible results out. Data journalism is not only a part of investigative journalism in digital age but also a think-tank journalism in today’s fast paced globalized world.
datajournonepal.org is a startup of data driven journalism in Nepal. In the present context of Nepal, data driven journalism could have an impact on shaping country’s direction. Little points of information which are not relevant in one stance, but, massively important when figured out from different perspectives.
We are encouraged to start off data journalism in Nepal at times when the globally emerging phenomenon have been overlooked by mainstream media outlets though it has a widened scope and future prospect in journalism. We believe data journalism may also uplift the practice of development journalism through the eyes of data Nepal.
