Abstract
Visualization has long been used in journalism to facilitate news storytelling. Media outlets applying visualization techniques in the news articles to communicate information efficiently and intuitively. This thesis aims to explore the way that visualization is applied in digital journalism with the New York Times (NYT) as a study object. By exploring the way to choose and design a visualization format and to incorporate visualizations in news stories, we can have a general idea on how media outlets are using visualization in the news storytelling. The findings reveal, first of all the relationship between the news topic and the visualization format adopted; secondly, the principles of designing visualization in the news article; and finally, the news components that are most represented in visualization. The outcome is expected to provide a direction for media practitioners on how to apply visualization in the visual news report.
