Politico Debuts DataPoint for Pro Subscribers

Downloadable data viz.

In March, Politico announced the hire of Todd Lindeman to lead a data visualization team in the creation of a new project for Politico Pro subscribers.

The project, called DataPoint, made its official debut yesterday, offering searchable, sortable, downloadable infographics that explain the worlds of policy, healthcare, current events, money and the elections.

“We’re excited for this evolution of how we deliver content. Pros have communicated to us that data visualization is an urgent need and DataPoint fills that void,” said Politico Pro vp and general manager Bobby Moran in a release. Moran also indicated that more Pro products are coming.

For those who aren’t subscribers, here’s a look at the site, from data editor Janie Boschma.
