Today, the Guardian, home of the DataBlog, has launched a new site as the home for their data journalism, DataStore.

 

 

From Simon Rogers, Editor of the DataBlog and the DataStore:

Today we launch a new gateway to our data journalism and visualisations - find out what’s new at guardian.co.uk/data.

Data journalism has become an increasingly big part of our work here at the Guardian - from Wikileaks to government spending, it’s our job to make the key data accessible and easy to understand.

As Tim Berners-Lee said recently:

[Journalism is] going to be about poring over data and equipping yourself with the tools to analyse it and picking out what’s interesting. And keeping it in perspective, helping people out by really seeing where it all fits together, and what’s going on in the country

So, we’ve pulled all our data journalism into one new place: guardian.co.uk/data.

Besides our award-winning datablog, the site includes:
• The key data of the day - broken down for you
• Our pick of the data blogosphere - which sites have the key posts?
• Search the world’s government data - and global development data
• What have you done with our data? Featured apps

We’ll be adding new features and changes over the next months. What would you like to see?
