Meet the team!

>>> lanacion.com.ar/data <<<

Project Description

LA NACION DATA website is not just a website, it´s a strategy, a project and a team. The strategy has to do with the commitment of using data to tell stories and expand the use of data, preferably open data, to activate demand of public information, in a country that just passed a FOIA law.

The internal strategy is to work in teams with journalists, tv producers and infographers so we just facilitate the data and help in the investigation or analysis, but they are the ones who domain the topic and know how to tell the stories.  Seguir leyendo

Description of the project

This project was conceived to join citizens and candidates to legislator in view of the crucial legislative elections in Argentina in 2017. To achieve an attractive experience for any user, it was designed a platform which simulated a conversation with politicians through WhatsApp -the communication means most widespread among Argentine people. Answers were real and questions had been already made to candidates who privately answered through WhatsApp to a LA NACION journalist. All candidates were made the same questions, and then each user may choose any question to “chat” with his/her candidate. When LA NACION interviewed candidates through WhatsApp, they were specially asked to use all available resources of the communication application: audio, emojis, videos, etc.  Seguir leyendo

Malvinas

Project Description

In 1982, the civilian military regime that ruled Argentina at that time sent conscripted soldiers who were not even 20 years old to fight in Malvinas against the British Army. Many of them died at the island and other 121 soldiers were buried in unnamed tombs and with heartbreaking words on it: Argentine soldier only known by God. Thanks to an ex combatant and to scientific work done in 2017, the Argentine state began to compensate said debt by identifying the tombs and notifying the families who finally knew where the soldier rested in peace.

Our production team wanted to pay tribute to those forgotten soldiers: we designed a big interactive infography that places the image of each soldier on his respective tomb, then we made contact with their families to know how their soldier was and how they, as family, lived all this time. By going through the structure of the interactive infography of the cemetery, the information of each soldier is displayed allowing thus each user to navigate the information structure.   Seguir leyendo
