As our governments and businesses become increasingly flush with information, more and bigger data are becoming available from across the globe. Increasingly, investigative reporters need to know how to obtain, clean, and analyze “structured information” in this digital world.

Here is a list of resources to get you started, but we want to keep updating our community with the best resources available.
