#DENmasterclass @MIS-UCLAN with Google News Lab teaching fellow Abigail Edge on Nov 5th

The Digital Editors Network is teaming up with the Google News Initiative to offer Northwest media professionals a Storytelling with Maps masterclass by Google teaching fellow Abigail Edge on 5th November hosted by the Media Innovation Studio at UCLan.

GNI teaching fellow Abigail Edge
Yes, you use Google maps in your everyday life, but do you know the new features of Google's mapping tools that are an easy way to make stories more informative, interactive and visually compelling? Learn how to plot multiple data points in My Maps, find historical imagery in StreetView, and explore how the new Google Earth tools can be used to tell timeline-based stories with Abigail, who is the Google News Initiative's UK teaching fellow. We'll also look at the new Google Earth Studio, a timeline-based animation tool that brings Google Earth's satellite and 3D images to life

The workshop and networking event will kick off at 4:30pm for 5pm. We'll aim to wrap the formal programme at 6:30pm with a networking reception going until 7:30pm. Register HERE.
