Google launched a new tool for journalist called News Lab. The news lab features tools for journalists to help them get what they need to stay on top of data and trends for reporting.
At first glance the new tool looks like an aggregate of Google’s old tools repackaged into a new look. But once you explore further you will find interesting new resources including a YouTube news wire and tools for data visualization.
My favorite tool the offer is a tool for creating your own map. This tool allows you to create your own interactive map to bring your story alive and engage users. I will definitely be using this feature in the future for articles on surfing.
To get started on enhancing your article with interactive maps and data visualization, visit Google’s news lab at https://newslab.withgoogle.com/.
