Google Street View (1)

  1. 1. Google Street View in Journalism
  2. 2. <ul><li>Google Street View is a revolutionary mapping system that allows the user to see a location not just from the traditional arial perspective, but from a vantage point of 2.5 meters from the ground. It offers a 360-degree view of neighborhoods all over the world. </li></ul>What is it?
  3. 3. How has it been used? <ul><li>Multiple online news sites linked the address of Phillip Garrido,  who was recently charged with the kidnapping of Kaycee Lee Dugard. Garrido kept Dugard in a makeshift compound in his backyard.  </li></ul>
  4. 4. More on Garrido: <ul><li>His rusty van was visible on street view. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Google Street View and Photographers <ul><ul><li>Photographers would be able to see the layout of a place before shooting it. A street view might help give them a sense of what they might want to shoot or where they might want to stand. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  Access to photographs in inaccessible places. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The use of the street view to stake out parking or prepare for the assignment. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Street View and Story Telling: A Visual Sense of the Past <ul><ul><li>For stories about construction, natural disasters, or anything that physically changes a place, a Google Street View could show readers what a place, building, etc. used to look like. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Street View and Editors <ul><ul><li>Use Google Street View to fact check a writer’s physical description of a place, or to catch a doctored photograph. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Check credibility of sources and locations.  </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Conclusion     Google Street View is a helpful tool for journalists, but it can never replace visiting an actual location. It is most useful for reporters and photographers to get an idea about a location before they begin their work. It should be noted that Google Maps can only be used at its full potential online.
