Mapping the New England MMA Area

In my journalism class the other day, we talked about how journalists in the 21st century can use maps to enhance their stories.

While this new media tool is mainly used for breaking down votes in an election or logging crimes, I started to think about how this medium can be applied to the MMA journalism world.

I don’t necessarily think the maps themselves are “journalism”, but MMA bloggers and writers can use this tool to really relay information and as a resource for their stories.

A few ideas that I hope to implement are mapping out all of New England’s MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gyms as well as all of the upcoming events from local promotions.  Maybe not as detailed as a Google map, but I think this could be a really awesome and useful endeavor for New England MMA fans and something I hope to implement in the future.

If anyone wants to help me put together these maps, send me links to local gyms and promotions.
