News unfolds in places and every newsworthy event is shaped by the details of location. Those details might include the specifics of a neighborhood as it is today or of the history leading to its current configurations. Alongside the development of web technologies, journalistic organizations have incorporated web-based maps to enhance reader engagement with stories. But these interactions haven't always been easy to produce. Points Unknown will train journalism students in GIS and mapping techniques, and will prompt them to…

From augmented, mixed and virtual reality, to 3D storytelling, immersive technologies provide new opportunities for journalists to broaden their stories and engage readers. While these technologies have been deployed in museum spaces, game design, and architecture/planning, journalism has been slow to move beyond 360-degree video and basic implementations of augmented reality. When outlets such as the Washington Post and The New York Times experiment with these technologies, they have been met with excitement and adoption. Some examples include Ashley Graham…
