The Cartogram of News
Unfiltered.news is an interactive cartogram of the world's news. The map provides a great way to explore which news stories are being reported each day around the world.
Unfiltered.news visualizes the top 100 news stories from Google News for each country on the map. If you select a country's circle on the map the top news stories from the country will load in the map sidebar and the topics will appear in the circle.
The size of the words indicate the number of times the topic has been mentioned in the news. If you select a topic from the map the news stories relating to that topic will then appear in the map sidebar. A timeline will also appear which allows you to explore the news trends for that topic over time.
