The democratization of data and its application to issues such as environmental monitoring, education, public safety and urban policies are on CODA’s agenda.

The program also includes the presence of Marc Túlio Pires, Head of Google News Lab in Brazil, who will hold workshops on advanced use of Google Trends tools and basic data visualization with Data Studio and Flourish.

“Google has several tools that should be related to journalistic work. When it comes to data, we are able to provide precision, agility and input to professionals in the field. Our goal at this event is to train and demonstrate the potential of these solutions,” says Marco Túlio Pires. See the full schedule.
