Google News Turned Into Map

      No Comments on Google News Turned Into Map

Here’s an interesting Flash app that maps news to rectangles of various sizes, a la Smartmoney. It’s not very legible even at 1600*1200, but that’s a limitation of the treemap format anyway. It’s fun to see the local obsessions in each country, but syndication of news agency articles hugely distorts the whole picture (which is a byproduct of how Google News is built, Newsmap only makes it more obvious). Google News have also been mapped to… a world map.
