Animated Heat Map: American TV News

Are you still getting news from television or from smartphones / tablets now? Surprisingly, over 55 percent Americans are still getting their news from television. A world map, which tracked and plotted all locations mentioned on U.S. television news, was created by Georgetown scholar Kalev Leetaru.

Map users can zoom in or use the search box on the top right of the map, and click on the locations to see the related details in the popup window.

Map Reviews: 3.5/5 Stars
This map is interesting and attractive enough with the animation effect, and is informative with the inserted external links for additional information.
However, there are errors in the underlying closed captioning (“two Paris of shoes”) to locations that are paired with onscreen information (a mention of “Springfield” while displaying a map of Massachusetts on the screen). Thus, as you click around, you would find some errors, especially small towns with common names. But I think it is acceptable that I am looking forward to the improved version.
