In the context of the research project LoCobSS for the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, I developed two prototypes together with Sebastian Meier that demonstrate data-driven storytelling approaches tailored to users. Through personalization, especially for otherwise abstract topics, direct references to the users' lifeworld make these more accessible. The interactive application shows users which risks (e.g. drought, flooding, densification) are expected in their environment. I supervised the entire process starting from the concept over to design and implementation.
