ARLINGTON, Va. - POLITICO today announced the launch of DataPoint, a new data visualization tool for POLITICO Pro subscribers. DataPoint, a news site with downloadable infographics, will help Pros not only conceptualize complex policy issues and regulatory processes, but will also provide Pros with quick ways to explain this information to organization members, clients and colleagues. The service will be led by Todd Lindeman, a former Washington Post senior graphics editor who has been part of a Pulitzer Prize winning team and brings 20 years of experience as a graphics and data visualization journalist to POLITICO.
"POLITICO's DataPoint team has over 50 years experience in designing succinct visuals that break down the most complex policy issues," said POLITICO Pro Editor Marty Kady. "Our Pros will find DataPoint's visual journalism, delivered directly to their inbox, to be sleek, digestible and superior to any other graphics service in the marketplace."
"Our mission is to create unique visual stories on issues that matter most to Pros," said Director of Pro Graphics Todd Lindeman. "Our concise and easy-to-read graphics will become critical for Pros dealing with multifaceted policy and political issues."
DataPoint will report and create unique visual stories on themes that matter most to Pros - policy, politics, current news, money and influence. Initially focused on the nexus of policy and politics, healthcare, energy, technology, and campaigns, the information will not be diluted, but presented in a digestible way that saves Pros time and allows them to easily understand complicated issues.
"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 Bobby Moran Vice President, General Manager of POLITICO Pro. "DataPoint is the first in a series of new products and services that POLITICO plans to offer in the next several months to help Pros continue to successfully navigate politics and policy."
POLITICO PRO is an integrated solution providing legislative and regulatory insights, data tools, and resources to policy professionals.
