Google News Australia

August 21, 2006

Newsmap is a cool visiualization of the news aggregator Google News. There is a set for Australia as well, so you can see what’s hot and what’s not. Newsmap is a treemap.

“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 (or in this case Australia).”

It’s Flash-based, but works fine on my weak laptop with Kubuntu.
