While data journalism is very powerful, it’s also very complicated.

Poynter today is highlighting a free open-source tool from AP that seeks to help make it easier for journalists to collaborate on projects.

“The purpose of it is to help us be more consistent in the way we work,” said Troy Thibodeaux, the AP’s data science and news applications editor. “Anyone on the team can jump on a project and all the projects have the same basic structure.”
