Wildfire Maps in Media
Lo is an interactive developer and storytelling expert at Mapbox in San Francisco. Their talk will explore how journalists can effectively and responsibly inform the public though well-designed and well-sourced maps. By examining maps from different news outlets, they will explore how design, data integrity and sourcing, and editorial decisions can make or break a map.
