graphs http://nhpr.org en Something To Look At: Raw Data Transformed http://nhpr.org/post/something-look-raw-data-transformed <p>Last week,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.wnyc.org">WNYC</a>'s John Keefe visited NHPR. He heads that station’s new <a href="http://datanews.tumblr.com/">Datanews</a> group, and demonstrated some truly illuminating interactive data maps for us. One map of New York reveals that&nbsp;the blocks where the highest number of stop and frisk gun searches are conducted by the NYPD, are not the places where stopping and frisking actually results in seizing a gun. So, using graphics to illustrate raw data can add value to news stories, or become the story itself.
