🌟 Telling Stories with Open Data

Jurisdiction: Victoria

In recent years, data story telling has emerged as a powerful and engaging form of communication. Using any data that you can find on data.vic tell us an interesting story in the form of a feature article or video report.

Data is a powerful way to communicate complex information. It's particularly suited to helping us show where things happen and showing how things change over time.

Data storytelling is more than simply visualising data. It allows us to combine a number of approaches to exploring different hypothesis or explore weird and unlikely correlations.

Taking a data-centric approach to storytelling makes information more accessible to people and it helps spark curiosity and engagement with important issues.

For this challenge we’re asking you to seek out the stories that can be told with Victorian Government Data. Your entry can be in the form of a feature article or video report.

For an example of the type of thing you could do check out this example using our popular baby names API https://vimeo.com/357271039
