Data journalism might seem still a fancy, laborious and expensive business, that only big international media outlets like The New York Times or The Economist can afford. But very often data at local level is widely available and more reliable. So what are the challenges of data journalism done at local level? How can we promote more local data journalism? What are the opportunities for data journalism at local level? How can editorial groups and newsrooms put resources together to work better? What are examples of local and small newsrooms making excellent data journalism?
