Calling data journalists worldwide: we need your help!

A recent IJNet post featured journalist and digital publishing consultant Phillip Smith's curation of more than 50 data journalism resources. The list includes guides, books, data repositories and presentations from all over the globe, as well as a hefty set of examples of data journalism in Latin America.

But now we want to hear from you. Help us add to this list. Where do you turn to build a visualization, find a data set for your story or to just learn more about the field?

We'll be wrapping up the call shortly, so submit your go-to link in the comments below or tweet at us with hashtag #globalddj, and it could be featured in our upcoming post.
