They show which stories have got the most mind-share in the media. 1. newsmap <http://www.marumushi.com/apps/newsmap/> <http://www.marumushi.com/apps/newsmap/newsmap.cfm> "Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator.

In The News <http://news.stamen.com/> "This data visualisation experiment is intended to give a high-level view of who's making news at the moment, and who made the news at specified times in the past"
