Knight News Challenge Entry: Giving Voice to Louisiana’s Recovery

The Data Center   (New Orleans)

June 2012

This Knight News Challenge Entry is entitled "Giving Voice to Louisiana’s Recovery: Data stories of resiliency and demographic change"  It proposes to create visualizations of Southeast Louisiana’s post-disaster(s) population losses with community explanations of what’s needed for fuller recovery and greater resilience.

Consuming the vast Census data is like trying to drink from a fire hose. GNOCDC will pinpoint key data of value to our local community, create visualizations of post-disaster demographic  changes so they’re understandable, and with our partners, engage communities to tell the story behind, and act on the data.
