SPJ Google News Lab Training links and resources

I hope you found Friday’s Google News Lab training useful. As promised, here are some of the examples I talked about and links to additional resources. If you have any further questions as you’re exploring the tools further you can email newslabsupport@google.com, and I’d also recommend following @googlenewslab on Twitter for more examples of how publishers are using Google tools to tell stories.
