Visualising Global Impact

Data visualisation is a tool that can help us to view a set of data in an original way. It can stimulate us to ask different questions of the material and explore new avenues of enquiry.

This visualisation plots stories related to Chile against location (dateline field) and time (date field), charting the global impact of the coup. By designating these stories as either neutral (event), official response (at government level or higher) or unofficial response (broadly popular) we gain a sense of how the world responded both to initial events in Chile and more specifically to coverage of them. For example, two (unofficial) stories on prisoners held in the football stadium (23rd September) contributed to an official response allowing press into the stadium (25th September).
