Olympics Torchbearers – working on a collaborative data project

I was recently asked by Paul Bradshaw (online journalist and founder of Help me Investigate) to create an infographic as part of his investigations into the Olympic Torchbearers – and more specifically, who got the places?

The investigation has not appeared both on The Guardian DataBlog (read it here) and Help Me Investigate Olympics

And – if you’re feeling in a generous mood, the whole investigation has been turned into an ebook, with a donation option – raising money for Brittle Bone Society.

"This is the best course I have been to in terms of keeping everyone engaged. I found the examples of other data visualisation to be very interesting as I had never seen them before and know now to avoid certain styles! There were also different data visualisers whose works were explored - it all opened up a new way to look at the data and tell the story; a philosophy I believe Caroline delivers very well. She kept things simple as they should be (not patronising mind)" Infographics training course attendee, Warwickshire County Council
