New launch: Cayman Compass Data Desk

We are pleased to announce the launch of a new section of our website, called “Cayman Compass Data Desk.”

The Compass Data Desk is the new home for our newsroom’s reporting based on data and investigations. We are using the page to share interactive features, data, full-text documents and source material from the daily reporting that appears in the print and online versions of the Cayman Compass.

Our first Compass Data Desk special project highlights the Compass newsroom’s continuing coverage of the unfolding world football scandal, anchored by an interactive version of the “Tracking FIFA’s Cayman connections” feature that appears on Page 8 of today’s print newspaper. The Compass Data Desk also is acting as a comprehensive clearinghouse for the Compass’s FIFA coverage, including links to dozens of stories that our journalists have written since top FIFA officials were arrested in Switzerland nearly one month ago.

In the future, the Compass Data Desk will not only be updated regularly, but will adapt and transform as we showcase the investigative work the Compass newsroom continues to pursue.
