Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. Displaying different broad topics of news in different colors, the size of the news “blocks” represent the frequency that the story is found globally. Larger blocks denote a wider coverage by the media. Visually, the size and colors of the stories demonstrate the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media.

Newsmap is a fascinating look at the news.
