For the next class on Friday, April 7, we would like you to continue to work with your groups (and editors!) to work towards producing your final geospatial narrative.
In addition, please review the stories below. These are journalistic pieces that have novel implementations of maps as stories. Please review these as an opportunity to explore how journalistic inquiry/reporting has led to novel spatial representations. No response (individual or group) is required for next class.
