Analysis: Computer-assisted reporting

I read an article about safety practices at two different coal mines. The reporter used computer-assisted reporting to produce the story. The reporter used an interactive database of public records from the U.S. Department of Labor to show a series of citations written out to the mine for violations. The reporter also included a picture slide show, an audio clip from one of the mine's foreman, an interactive photo gallery where you can view details about the men who died in the mine, and a graph that showed the key aspects of safe mines. The reporter would need to know how to efficiently operate a computer and create interactive links in order to do the reporting. The reporter would also need to know how to make slide shows, use audio clips, and make and use graphs.
