The Local News Map is a crowd-sourced resource that tracks what is happening to local newspapers, broadcast outlets and online/digital news sources in places across Canada. It displays changes to service at local news outlets, including information on the launch/closing of local news organizations along with service increases/reductions going back to 2008. The map is a collaborative project undertaken by Professor April Lindgren, lead investigator for the Local News Research Project at Toronto Metropolitan University’s School of Journalism, and Associate Professor Jon Corbett, who leads the University of British Columbia’s SpICE Lab (Spatial Information for Community Mapping). A summary of the latest map data is available here.
