Putting news on the map, and maps on the news


WINNER: Best Situational Context Solution

MapCake

MapCake is an innovative way to incorporate maps into a story. It's a Production-phase solution that allows journalists:

  • to visualize connections between stories and places.
  • to get more insights about the context of the article they're writing.
  • by tagging their current story, to support the ever-growing database. MapCake adds value simultaneously to the context of the article, as it is being written.

The web application is accessible at http://mapcake.herokuapp.com/
