From The Washington Post, TimeSpace-World is an experiment in a visual way to see news stories from around the world. You can specify the time period during a day that you want to see with the slider, and then click the stories to zoom into the map. You can also enter search terms to view a smaller set of relevant stories.
TimeSpace is an interactive map that allows you to navigate articles, photos, video and commentary from around the globe. Discover news hot-spots where coverage is clustered. Use the timeline to illustrate peaks in coverage, and customize your news searches to a particular day or specific hour. (Many Washington Post stories appear at midnight; others are published throughout the day as news happens). Click the ? In the upper right for help.
