Baltimore became the world’s capital of data journalism in March 2014 as the National Institute of Computer Assisted Reporting (NICAR) convened its annual conference. A team from the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) gave several presentations at the conference. In one of them, we explained how we analyzed the leaked 2.5 million files that resulted in the Offshore Leaks investigation. In this post, we describe how journalists and other researchers can best use this data to yield maximum results for investigations.
