 Vanessa Schneider ’07, Geo Media Manager at Google, will present a workshop on “Storytelling with Google Maps” at 4 p.m. Friday, October 11, in room 285 of Roy H. Park Hall.

Storytelling with Google Maps
A map can be a great complement to the right story. Whether you're comparing local demographic data, setting the scene in a broadcast story, or looking to display satellite imagery of an affected disaster area, a map can help bring your data to life for your reader. This workshop will provide an introduction to Google Maps, Google Earth and Google Fusion Tables — three mapping tools that can help you tell your story in a compelling and visual way. We'll review several examples of how newsrooms around the world are already using these tools, and demo a few of them. Note: Laptops are encouraged if you'd like to follow along.
