LEAD – LEarning from the pAst

Implementation of the data & visualization hub LEAD - LEarning from the pAst: Digitized past pandemics in Switzerland

History offers scenarios from past pandemics. In Switzerland, these past experiences have been too little researched, they are not present. We currently digitize large amounts of historical data. Now, we aim to go the “last mile” to a publicly accessible data & interactive visualization hub, telling selected data stories.
