Happy news: VW foundation officially decided to fund our project with the working title DIVID-DJ: Data Extraction and Interactive Visualization of Unexplored Textual Datasets for Investigative Data-Driven Journalism.
We are one out of eight projects funded as a part of the initiative “Science and Data Journalism”. Our goal is to create a piece of software that visualizes the content of large text data collections, to help journalists working with data leaks.
VW foundation invited all project partners to a kickoff meeting at TU Dortmund, where all projects were introduced prior to the “Daten-Labor” conference of Netzwerk Recherche. The project funding will officially start in January 2016.
More details come!
