Blogging about maps as journalism

Please write a blog post about mapping as journalism based on our discussion in class and your thoughts on the subject. Tell us whether you think mapping can actually be journalism, or is just a tool that journalists use.

Discuss (and link to) at least three examples of online maps. They can be among those that we looked at in class or others that you find. What do you like about mapping as compared to more-traditional forms of journalism? What are its strengths? What are its shortcomings?

Please have your post uploaded to your blog before class on Thursday.
