He will be presenting visualisations of sunlight and shade for Wellington, NZ and San Francisco, CA.

Harkanwal uses data visualisation as part of storytelling in journalism. He’ll talk about data journalism – Telling stories with data is a recent development in journalism and data visualisation plays a key role in enabling journalists to break down complex topics, from election results for every polling booth, to an interactive map showing the birthplace for every All Black.
