Newspaper Map – Web Resource
Okay news junkies and map geeks, check out this fabulous interactive website: www.newspapermap.com! Not only is it visually stunning, it is an excellent online tool for anyone interested in local news.
The developers of the website, located in Sweden, have this motto:
All news is local news
Local perspectives on global news. In your language.
The website is one giant map highlighting the location and language of more than 10,000 newspapers around the world. You can search for specific newspapers, zoom in on a geographical area or filter by language. Mainstream papers are highlighted with a large marker, and regional papers are represented with a small marker. Click on any marker for the name of the paper and a link to its website. A list of translation languages are offered or you can opt to translate the website with the click of a button once there. You can even filter the website by language. Check it out – but be warned, it can be addicting!
