Map campers get rolling

Journalists who attended IRE and NICAR’s Mapping Boot Camp in January have wasted little time in putting their new skills to work.

In early February, after a 3.0-magnitude earthquake rattled northern New Jersey, Bob Rebach of The Record in Bergen County, N.J., used GIS to map the locations of the region’s earthquakes since 1990. Rebach, a staff artist at the newspaper, turned his map into a graphic that showed each earthquake by magnitude.

Two days after Valentine’s Day, CTV-News British Columbia, aired a report showing where singles live in Vancouver. Map camper Jonathan Woodward, a producer at CTV, mapped demographic data from Statistics Canada to find the concentrations of single men and women.
