Interactive Tools Makes Reporting Easier

Danny Sullivan looks at the difference a decade+ makes for reporters looking to track the progress of fires across California:

“I was a graphics reporter in the area during the big Laguna Beach fire of 1994, with my job specifically to map the spread of that fire. I had to do it the old fashioned way — talk to the firefighters and later actually drive through the area neighborhood-by-neighborhood. Today, interactive maps are easily at hand through the resources of the web.”
