Examples of interactive journalism – Week 6

To see all posts in the “Examples” series, view the category “Examples.”

This week’s example is much more interesting to look at than its title would imply. Exit polls 2012: How the vote has shifted shows a chart for each U.S. state that illustrates whether demographic groups are sliding toward the “blue” side or the “red.” (Blocks include Education and Income, among others.) At the top you can scroll left or right through all 50 states. Roll over the red and blue arrows to see details for each block. (This is all JavaScript and CSS.)

    Infographic Name: The Future of Heart Health in China
    Description Sentence: I think that our class would appreciate this infographic as is it as a great example of using interactivity to provide in-depth information & journalism on a subject (in this case the current state of heart health in China).

  2. Hi, Tyler. I will accept that graphic this time, but it is not really interactive. It is animated, but the user cannot interact with the animations. It functions much like a PowerPoint, just next, next, next. So in the future, you need to be sure your examples are truly INTERACTIVE.

  3. Wow — Caitlyn, I like that map a lot! I love the way you can zoom in very close to see even a city as small as Gainesville. I also like the way the pointer at the top slides with a bounce effect. It looks so cool when it slides.

    “My State of the Union Address in 60 Seconds” 2/13/13 (The New York Times)

    I thought this interactive “clip piecing” was a really neat idea! This interactive piece allows users to take pieces of Obama’s State of the Union Address and make their own version in 60 seconds by clipping seconds from his televised speech. It’s a great way to personalize the speech in a minute time frame.
