Map The News
News organizations can use First Draft GIS to include a map with all of their news articles. Just drop an iframe that points to https://firstdraftgis.com and see a map magically appear on your page. First Draft GIS creates the map by going to your web page, identifying places mentioned on the page and then dropping those points on a map.
