Datashare: Help Test ICIJ’s Latest Tool

Built by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, Datashare is an application that allows journalists to efficiently search and organize documents. Datashare is built on some of the same technology that helped ICIJ produce its biggest projects, such as the Panama Papers and Paradise Papers, but rather than rely on ICIJ’s servers, Datashare can be installed on your own computer. While the technology is still in beta – which means you will almost certainly experience glitches and moments where the program doesn’t work -- ICIJ hopes the technology will assist with secure collaborations, without needing ICIJ’s data team to index hundreds of files.
