Argentina

LA NACION DATA is an initiative and a team from LA NACION in Buenos Aires, whose goal is to create impact and change in Argentina through the use and promotion of open data journalism. Our main focus is to produce innovative journalistic investigations through new technologies that collect, analyse, process and visualize data driven stories. The objective is to locate outliers and identify trends that are statistically and socially significant with information that is already available or by building our own datasets from scratch to uncover closed documents and files that are essential for society. LA NACION is a media group that includes a national newspaper, known for its quality journalism and editorial integrity. LA NACION DATA was launched in 2011 and since then, our main premise became to maintain journalistic excellence by applying new technologies and data science in news stories. This is why we took on the challenge of becoming pioneers on data journalism in the region and took advantage of data science techniques like automatization and open collaboration through crowdsourced investigations in teams with NGOs and Universities. We are fervent defenders of transparency, accountabilityand open government because we believeit improves the quality of open data. The vision we share and promote is that each set of published data means more knowledge released. Therefore, we not only provide datasets and analysis for investigations, but we also participate in hacktivism and open data communities. Our daily job is always a teamwork task because every member has their own unique strengths and skills which complements the abilities of the others. We all have a shared purpose which is to do something meaningful through remarkable journalism that improves people’s lives and generates understanding and knowledge.
