Mind the Map: Toward a Handbook for Journalists

While browsing and studying maps for our final project, Catherine and I started compiling a mapping handbook for journalists. It’s far from complete, but we wanted to share an initial blog post and ask for your thoughts and feedback. Rather than focus on technical details (many of which are already covered in other blogs or places like the Data Journalism Handbook), we focused on questions a journalist might ask before making a map in the first place.

We’d love to hear your feedback, additional examples or questions.
