Knight News Challenge Entry: Fact Talk

Community Information Now (CINow)   (San Antonio)

June 2012

This Knight News Challenge entry proposes to create "FactTalk" to blend words, graphics, and numbers in a platform enabling conversation and action planning around the data.

Mobile-friendly interactive “influence maps” will organize associated variables by visually depicting reinforcing and moderating “upstream” and “downstream” indicators.  Weave will enable users to explore these relationships, geographic distribution, and trend over time.  The product will also enable people to discuss and organize around the data using PCs or phones.
