Data Journalism

Powered by reporters and programmers who use data to augment journalism activities

Data Journalism Project

The Digital Data Desk at The Canadian Press started with funding from the Google News Initiative to advance data journalism projects and help the media industry thrive in the digital age.

The team used automation and Natural Language Processing to create content from data by finding patterns and determining what news stories can be told about them.

Using public data sets from all levels of government, research institutes and academia, the team:

  • Leveraged human and algorithmic analyses to create news content from the data.
  • Introduced storytelling tools that help journalists save time.
  • Contributed to the breadth of local news generated in Canada.
