Japan: Mapping the News with Newsgraphy

Categories: East Asia, Japan, Ideas, Media & Journalism, Technology

Hatena user id:kaiseh introduces a news mapping mashup service they created [1] [ja] called “Newsgraphy [2]“, based on an earlier mapping service for Hatena blogs released in June (with much fanfare [3] [ja]) called HatenarMaps [4] (also by id:kaiseh). The new service creates a 2-dimensional visualization of news stories from Yahoo News using Voronoi Treemaps, allowing the user to highlight news regions on the map by subject, by date, as well as by person/place/organization.
