The Bureau of
Investigative Journalism

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is a not-for-profit investigative journalism organisation based in London.
Below is some of the work I did with their local data unit, the Bureau Local, as part of The Google News Lab Fellowship in Summer 2017.

Visualising a new kind
of journalism

A blog post reflecting on my fellowship at the Bureau Local in the Summer of 2017 and
my thoughts on the type of collaborative data journalism they practise.

“My time at the Bureau opened up a whole new sense of what journalism, particularly collaborative data journalism, could be.

The Bureau Local's goal is to promote and maintain the viability of local journalism as an essential public service and it does this through providing a service many local news outlets may not have yet - data journalism. ”

So in the Bureau Local, a small team of experienced investigative and developer journalists have gotten to work, applying this exciting, emerging discipline to revive local newspapers."

An investigation into the rapid increase in intensive farms across the UK
that have developed over the past 15 years and the effect it is having on UK agriculture.

For this visualisation, we created a custom-made D3 dot density map of the UK, geo-locating each intensive farm and revealing their increase over time through the use of an interactive ticker that displays change over time.
