Google Media Tools: a new intersection for newsgathering

Google Media Tools: a new intersection for newsgathering | visual data | Scoop.it

The New York Times used Google+ Hangouts to interview U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry about Syria’s chemical weapons. The Weather Channel used Google Earth to illustrate the damage of Superstorm Sandy through dramatic before and after satellite images and live YouTube video.
