ATLO is the first team in Hungary dedicated only to visual journalism. In November 2018 Átlátszó.hu, the first independent Hungarian investigative center, launched a special team called ATLO to strengthen its graphic and visual journalism activities. ATLO’s main role is to support Átlátszó’s investigative and data journalism activities with data, data-based information graphics and visualizations. Apart from this, ATLO’s aim is to produce visually compelling content related to science, statistics, digital humanities and more.
ATLO’s work is frequently quoted and referenced by the largest Hungarian news sites like Index, 444, 24.hu, Hvg or Blikk, and gained international attention by reports on Online Journalism Blog and Global Investigative Journalism Network.
