There is a vast amount of unstructured data generated every second by internet-connected devices. There are also many technologies and tools available today that journalists can use to gather, clean, and analyze massive amounts of data. These are just a few of the factors driving the rise of data journalism.

There are different perspectives as to what data journalism is. In my view, data journalism is:

Journalism in which data is the source, inspiration, and the tool for telling a story.

The Guardian Data Blog published a great article about data journalism in which it states that "data journalism is not graphics and visualisations. It's about telling the story in the best way possible."

Vox published an article about data journalism saying that "data journalism is not just data visualization. Data journalism is, simply, journalism based off of data."

Ultimately, the goal of data journalism is to tell accurate, informative stories that are engaging for readers on all devices and platforms.
