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. With the popularization of cartography, anyone with a computer and an internet connection can make a map, yet in news organizations, the practices of cartography and GIS have remained largely in domain of engineering and graphics teams, not with reporters.

Drones, or unmanned aerial systems, provide a perspective that is truly unique. It seems to be good for providing a sense of scale (moving from the ground to a significant vantage point above some event or phenomenon). Drones can provide access to regions that are otherwise impossible to film. The artful, informative…
