The Global Editors Network has announced the finalists of its 2015 Data Journalism Awards, highlighting four ProPublica projects for their innovative work in data visualization and data-based stories:
A Disappearing Planet: a data visualization laying out which animals across four categories -- mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds -- are most at risk of extinction over the next 100 years.
Inside the Firewall: an interactive graphic allowing users to easily see and compare how 18 news outlets have been blocked by censors in China over time.
Losing Ground: an in-depth look at how much of southeastern Louisiana will be consumed by the Gulf of Mexico due to climate change, gas drilling and levees -- putting millions of homes, much of the region's seafood production and precious parts of Louisiana's history and culture at risk.
Treatment Tracker: a news application that takes the most recent data from Medicare's Part B program and puts it into context -- allowing people to see how often their doctors billed for the most expensive, most intensive types of office visits and how that that compared to other providers in their specialty and state.
GEN's awards competition is the first international contest recognizing outstanding work in the field of data journalism. The 10 winners will be named during the DJA Ceremony in June.
