News Dots

In: Innovative Interactive Maps News Media

10 Sep 2009

Recent news items illustrated as a giant interactive network map. “Subjects-represented by the circles below-are connected to one another if they appear together in at least two stories, and the size of the dot is proportional to the total number of times the subject is mentioned.” The nice part is you can drill down to the actual news articles on the right. Updated daily by Slate.

Sorry Courtney — I forgot to link the image to the site. Should be all set now. Just back from vacation and getting back into the swing of things…
