CNN iReports on Google Maps
CNN iReport is a portal for individuals to tell their own news stories. iReport includes many tools to help contributors tell their stories and discuss the issues that interest them.
The CNN iReport Map is a Google Map showing the location of user contributed stories. As well as browsing the stories by location via the map the submitted stories can be searched by 'most viewed', 'most commented' and 'most shared'.
If you click on a story's marker on the map you can read a brief introduction and, if the story interests you, click through to read the complete submitted story.
