Mapping in online journalism

My editor has been pushing hard to get photos along with our stories for The Undertone. And rightly so.

When I was assigned to write an article, (which won’t appear for a couple of weeks) the first thing that popped into my head was to use Atlas and embed it on the Web site. It appeared we might have some trouble with the content management system that we’re using, so I sent her the code along with some still pictures just in case. I haven’t heard back from her yet. But if all goes well, mine might be the second use of Atlas in college media.

Bryan at Innovation in College Media wrote today about the first (as far as he knows) use of the Atlas mapping tool.

  • Be sure and let us know when you get that story on the web, and I’ll link it. To be honest, I got the tip about the BSU map from the Atlas folks, who are able to track who’s using the application. Otherwise, I’d be totally in the dark. :-)
