App allows journalists to follow the crowd and find breaking stories

Rachel Wise, Reynolds Journalism Institute | June 13, 2017

The startup Populace uses data from social media and other sources to display crowd densities at various locations across urban areas.

We find out how it works from founder and Chief Executive Officer Chris Hawk.

Reporting by Lindsey Miller, Rachel Wise and Jessica King.
