Knight News Challenge Entry: Narragraph

Shift Research Lab   (Denver*)

June 2012

This Knight News Challenge entry would enable anyone to add narrative clarity to static data visualizations with a web-ready, no coding required, interactive annotation tool.  It includes using NNIP partners as beta testers.

Information is abundant; clarity is rare. Narragraph lets anyone – reporters, researchers, data nerds of all skill levels – dynamically walk audiences through visualizations as if they were sitting side-by-side. Audiences can pose questions by directly highlighting the visualization. Simple line-graphs, charts, or maps become powerful, engaging data conversations.
