ONA Pittsburgh: Data Visualization for Journalists and Media

 An ONA Local event, hosted by ONA Pittsburgh

Online News Association Code Academy

Are you interested in making your stories more dynamic, but not sure how to do it? This four hour workshop will explore basic workflows and techniques for using data to tell stories. We will also be using data to generate maps and charts that are dynamic and generated from real civic data provided in partnership with Pittsburgh OpenData, our Code for America brigade. We will also explore ways to take the visualizations created and place them online!
The software we will be using is Tableau Public, the free version of Tableau, one of the most popular data visualization packages in journalism. It works on both PCs and Macs, and is a free download at

Bring your own laptop. No coding skills are required—basic computer literacy is all that’s needed.

We know that you all are busy individuals, so we are offering this workshop on two consecutive days. Note that the content of two days will be identical—no need to come to both!

Workshop hours:
Friday 9am to 1pm, Saturday 9am to 1pm
