Geo-Journalism

Uma das tendncias atuais do jornalismo na era digital a vinculao de notcias geo-localizao. Postei algo sobre hyperlocal journalism recentemente. As aplicaes para o uso jornalstico com mdias locativas (geo-journalism) tm crescido a exemplo do recente acordo entre o NYT e Google. Vejam no post do LOJOCONNECT.COM com algumas das ltimas aes nesse campo:

“- Earlier this month, the New York Times and Google announced a new partnership that allows readers to track articles geographically using Google Earth. (If you want to see what’s going on in Paris, for example, a few clicks on a Google Earth map will show you the latest headlines coming out of the French capital.)

– When protesters attempted to disrupt the Olympic torch procession in San Francisco, the Sacramento Bee used Qik (technology that streams live footage from videophones to a Web-based flash player) to broadcast live videos of the scuffle.

– And, just the other night, as we waited for the results of the Pennsylvania Democratic primary to come in, we were treated to a high-tech presentation on CNN, featuring correspondent John King and a gigantic, touch-sensitive interactive map.”
