Geospatial Powering New Age Journalism - A Workshop (6 April 2020 | 1000 - 1600 hrs)
The technology revolution has changed the way Journalism is practiced. The profession that once relied on video cameras, microphones and beat reporters for information gathering, is today seeing the use of satellite imagery, maps and other digital tools. Though we are still far away from bots taking over, the modern-day journalists ought to stay prepared for the digital transformation.
Geospatial Media and Communications has established itself as the most collaborative and interactive platform for the global g eospatial community worldwide, and is now ready to take the level of engagement to new heights through this event.
With mapping proving to be an excellent tool for storytelling and satellite imagery providing authenticity to reports from areas that are mostly inaccessible, the journalists of today and tomorrow have to go beyond the traditional forms of information gathering. Through this workshop, we intent to bring you up to date on the latest trends and practices in journalism.
The 'Workshop for New Age Journalists' will provide you the opportunity to interact with top satellite imagery providers, mapping and data modelling experts, and location data analysts to get hands on training on how and when to use imagery, develop skills to draw interesting maps for new stories and carry out better data analysis through visualization.
