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