Publication Date: 04/06/2017

Size of team/newsroom:small


In 2014 the German regional daily Berliner Morgenpost established its Interactive Team consisting of data journalists, web developers, a designer as well as a data trainee. The team developes exclusive stories drawn from databases and produces interactive multimedia and data journalism experiences. In 2016 and early 2017 the team delved into new story formats and new research methods: From evaluating satellite images (These are Germany’s Greenest Cities) to data-driven animations (Berlin Marathon 2016 in Time-Lapse) and analyses of historical elections (It Wasn’t Always the East – Where Germany Votes for the Far-Right). Team: Julius Troeger (head of the team), Andre Paetzold (editor), Moritz Klack (developer), David Wendler (designer), Christopher Moeller (developer), Marie-Louise Timcke (data trainee)
