NewsMap

I don’t know how many of you know about NewsMap, but I’ve been a fan for years, so I’ve decided to add it to my links on the right.Here’s the explanation of the concept:Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator. Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information. Newsmap’s objective takes that goal a step further and provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe.If you’re a news junkie, you’re really gonna get a kick out it. But even if you’re not, it’s definitely worth a peek. 😉
