Geotagged iReports from President Obama’s Inauguration

The iReporters were out in mass yesterday, and the geo-tagged map of their submissions to CNN looks quite different than it did right before inauguration day.

Before:

Citizen Journalist Photos and Reports from the US Presidential Inauguration

After:

CNN.com - Special Reports - The 44th President

I love these types of mashups involving storychasing (citizen journalism and digital storytelling) with geographic maps. Geotagged content offers great opportunities for exploratory learning.
