Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful. We created the News Lab to support the creation and distribution of the information that keeps us all informed about what's happening in our world today—quality journalism.
Today's news organizations and media entrepreneurs are inventing new ways to discover, create and distribute news content—and we're here to provide tools, data, and programs designed to help.
Whether you're comparing local demographic trends over time, highlighting shelter locations during a flood, setting the scene in a broadcast story, or looking to display before-and-after satellite imagery of a disaster area, a map or chart can be a great vehicle to share information with your audience. At this hands on workshop you will learn how to incorporate Google's mapping tools—from interactive web maps to HD Google Earth animations for television - into your storytelling.
Cost: Attendance is free, following an invitation from Google.
