Wednesday, Google unveiled a new home
for its products that might help journalists.
"What we hope is that it allows the journalists who already have some understanding of these tools to further explore them," Daniel Sieberg, Google's head of media outreach, said in a phone call with Poynter. "And for the ones who didn't know, it gives them a place to start."
The site offers stops for finding trends
, sections on publishing
, a maps engine
-- including a lite version that allows users to customize maps
and add in locations -- and even the company's own Transparency Report
, showing requests from governments around the world for removal of content during the past six months.
