Comments: “For one, it’s great that they pull in Google Maps. I was kind of surprised by that choice — because they do so much mapping — but nobody can provide what that area looks like in the daytime quite the way Google can. The fact that you see the title and the option to see the caption lets the photos speak. The piece has very controlled use of the storytelling elements — photo, video and map.”
