Intro to Data-Driven Journalism with NZZ Data

ZURICH – Data is all around us. We can access it with greater ease; hence, the recent boom in “data-driven journalism.” Data is used to structure the story inside and out, as a tool for verification and presentation, and everything in between. Many news organizations around the world are starting to publish stories and cover beats that can be better told through data. The same goes for our #urbanmobilityCH newsroom, where we will be publishing two stories driven by data. We invited Sylke Gruhnwald, head of the data team at NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), one of Switzerland’s oldest and most widely circulated newspapers, to a Google hangout with us and asked her how her team works with data and how we can use data in our stories.
