As journalism becomes more digital, news organizations increasingly need more engaging interactive content for their sites, and easy ways to create it. Meograph is a tool that its developers say enables anyone to easily create professional-quality rich media; it pairs maps, timelines, links, and multimedia, and offers viewers a new form of interactive story that they can watch in minutes or explore for hours.
Misha Leybovich, the founder of Meograph, will present this useful tool for journalists. He will cover the problems that Meograph is trying to solve, demonstrate the basic and "power" features of the product, how its commonly used, and will hold a short workshop to teach attendees how to put it to use. Please bring a laptop!
Pizza and drinks will be served. This event is free.
