I’ve done this datavis on arab spring with processing + inkscape and here’s Pablo’s comments
- In order to see the highlighted areas front pages need to be less intense (semitransparent).
- US newspapers have longer format. We’ll have to take that in account. Every newspaper has its own format. Preserve it.
- Highlighted areas need to be stronger. Use multiply option in the fusion of the layer, and not transparency. I think you changed from layer after you coded the “mubarak photo” 6.3 nytimes, so the other areas don’t work well.
- To make it better: it’d be great to add some info, at some days.
- Add year, source, color code: for Syria and Egypt, what is being coded
