Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. Google News automatically groups news tories with similar content and places them based on algorithmic results into clusters. In Newsmap, the size of each cell is determined by the amount of related articles that exist inside each news cluster that the Google News Aggregator presents.
In that way users can quickly identify which news stories have been given the most coverage, viewing the map by region, topic or time. Newsmap also allows to compare the news landscape among several countries, making it possible to differentiate which countries give more coverage to, for example, more national news than international or sports rather than business.
