Spatial Journalism is a concept that I have been working on for several years that examines the intersection between journalism, spatality, location-based services and mobile technologies.
Spatial journalism can be defined as an emergent kind of journalism that incorporates space, place and/or location (physical, augmented and virtual) into the process and practice of journalism.
