easy mapping for news media

Why do we love MAPS?

I was in Maps4News.com world yesterday and when you apply some simple logic, it’s very apparent that we, as people, love Maps… BUT WHY?

Figured I need to put a call out so went over to Twitter and got drawn towards the data journalists… these guys process data and turn it into something we can all understand… they create maps of sorts…

Maps are essentially tons of data turned into something more digestible…

I found a hub for data journos and simply followed a whole bunch on mass… I then went and asked a few what they thought and here is some of their feedback…

Why do you think people love maps? please add your thoughts below…

Thank you.
