Mapping the news

Two interesting (and still in beta) mapping applications present the news in new ways:

– The downright quantum TimeSpace from The Washington Post, which “allows users to navigate through hundreds of photos, video, articles, tweets, posts and audio related to the national election from around the country.” (Further evidence that “tweet” may be penetrating farther into the language than I’d have imagined.)

– The Seattle Times’ Mapping the News, which features an ever-shifting globe showing what seem to be randomly pulled news stories tied to specific places. (There’s also a slightly more traditional local edition for Seattle-area stories.)

I don’t know if a geographic interface will ever be the main way anyway takes in the news, but it’s good to see some fresh experiments.
