we @ CORRECTIV love to share our data & code with others. this are some github-repos with data visualizations
If you want to see how we wrangle data here are some jupyter notebooks.
Here are a few in-depth descriptions about projects I worked on during my time at CORRECTIV:
Making a huge cross-border investigation technically happen
Making a big cross-border investigation technically happen
A collection of data visualisations about mini-jobbers in germany.
An award-winning platform to provide crowd-based investigations for correctiv.org
and here is some legacy stuff (not related to CORRECTIV):
- Simple Open Data Portal – the city of “Essen” publishes some open data sets but not in a proper way. we from the OK Lab Ruhrgebiet fixed that. –> github
- conflicts of interests resolver – making possible conflicts of interests in open access papers searchable. this was done during a gen hackathon
- datenwende.org – some attempts to map the german renewable energy market as part of a fellowship from the Vocer Medialab
- bruecken.medienrevolte.de – see train bridges in germany from birds eye view
