Today’s journalists operate in an extremely fast paced world.  They must be able to not only synthesize unprecedented amounts of information in record time to get their stories out first, but also communicate this information in a manner that can be understood quickly, accurately and fully.  To accomplish this, award-winning journalist Glen McGregor of the Ottawa Citizen leverages a digital mapping and analysis technology that makes it possible to integrate, map and analyze vast amounts of information.  This technology reveals visual trends and patterns in the data that may otherwise go unnoticed, helping to quickly convey the heart of the story.
