Discover the power of local journalism
The Impact Tracking Map is a transformative tool that links compelling stories to real-world change in local communities.
A Tool for Growth and Sustainability
The map provides a comprehensive view of the value of local journalism. It enables local newsrooms to present specific examples of how their journalism creates an impact in the communities they serve. This enhances their chances of receiving donations, securing institutional funding, attracting clients, and forming partnerships. This support is crucial for the sustainability and growth of local news organizations.
For freelancers, staff journalists and publications
Freelancers, staff journalists and publications can now directly connect the impact of their articles by attaching evidence such as legal documents, testimonials, photos, videos, and links to external sources. This information is then displayed on the Impact Map, marked by pins at specific locations, allowing users to explore the impact made in their communities.
Adding impact is easy
Journalists can log impact against any of their articles in just a few minutes.
Features under development
We want this map to become an industry adopted tool and are building many more enhancements to allow for more use cases.
