A System For News Visualization
Digital news content has been witnessing tremendous growths both from traditional publishers as well as user generated content. Due to changing lifestyles, people have been increasingly watching news available on the Web sites on their desktops, laptops, and mobile devices for shot durations of time, in between activities. Thus, it is extremely important to provide facilities to get a glimpse of news on a Web site or on a mobile device in a manner that is appropriate for use in time-constrained situations. The corresponding user interface design is also challenging. In this project, we have designed and developed a system for gathering news from the Web and providing a visualization of the news using icons and brief texts at the appropriate locations on a map. This facilitates news consumption in a quick and effective manner.
