TechCrunch: The Associated Press’ plan to put hyperlocal data in the hands of reporters

TechCrunch: The Associated Press’ plan to put hyperlocal data in the hands of reporters. “Since 2013, The Associated Press has been making an intentional effort to put data in the hands of local reporters. In the last few years, this meant assisting with Freedom of Information Act requests and putting a team of four engineers to work building visualizations and extracting insights from massive spreadsheets. Today the AP is entering into a joint pilot program with Data.world to equip reporters with granular, local, data for more telling stories.”
