The Guardian has launched a new data journalism and visualisation website to showcase the title's own work in this area as well as external examples.

The new site, announced by datablog/datastore editor Simon Rogers at's news:rewired event on Thursday, pulls together all of the Guardian's data journalism features, from its key data of the day to its Coins government database.

"The data operation has just grown massively over the last year," Rogers told

"The new site has resulted from the fact that data journalism has become part of what the Guardian is known for".

The site will showcase the Guardian's work in this field, as well as providing a place where the public can search data, he said.

Rogers added that he hopes in time the site will become more of a forum for data journalism, where examples by others can also be highlighted by the Guardian.
