Example text

Ing news coverage, information graphics can often take us where photos cannot and explain events when words are insufficient. In fact, coverage of breaking news events such as the Columbine (Colorado) High School shootings (1999), the tragic deaths of public figures such as Princess Diana (1997) or John Kennedy Jr. (1999) or major air disasters like the crash of Airbus A300 (2001) in New York or the Concorde Jet in Paris (2000) is, in many ways, driven by visual devices. The presentation of photographs and information graphics can both convey the impact and importance of a story, as well as relay a more immediate degree of emotion than other forms of storytelling.

However, like any technology, animated graphics are not perfect. In fact, as is the case with any illustration technique, design effect or visually graphic treatment of information, early use of animation software in graphics reporting has at times been overused. It is extremely important for all graphic journalists to understand that the technological ability to implement a visual effect should not be equated with free license to use it. In fact, an effective graphics reporter knows when to show restraint where animation is concerned.

However, because a graphics reporter is often gathering source material for both the textual and visual elements of a graphic, there are a number of tools he should bring along. Sketchpad, notebook and pencils: Always be prepared to take notes and sketch the scene. Digital camera: Take pictures from different angles and varying distances from the area(s) of visual interest. Digital images can be read quickly once you get back to the office, as well as provide a more realistic visual reference for your scene.
