Interactive News Map

Via Sokari at Black Looks, I came across a very cool global News Map by Muti in South Africa.

News Map is a mashup of Google Maps and Yahoo Search. You click on a regional tab and a map is displayed. Click on a country on that map and the latest news headlines appear in a clickable list on the side. They even sub-divide in such a way that you can click individual states in the United States map, which is great, especially if, like I do, you live in The Greatest State in the Union.*

I wish, however, that they would provide a plugin that would allow you to post the mashup in your sidebar. What an excellent alternative to straight news feeds.

  1. Thanks for your mention and kind words of News Map. I am currently adding all the US states and as you mention Oregon is already there. I intend to add several of Africa’s geographical features as well, for example, Lake Victoria, Mount Kiliminjaro etc. I may also add major cities at a later date as well.

    Regards
