100% of survey complete.

Thank you for taking part in our survey.

We're interested in learning if and how news organizations are using location-based technologies in their storytelling. Location-based technologies include GPS-enabled devices, mobile phones, interactive maps and audio tours. The results of this survey will help inform our recommendations on how news outlets can effectively utilize locative media.

Thanks again,
The LoJo Team
