____________________[PRO] Newsmap & другие treemaps

Newsmap is an application that visually reflects the constantly changing landscape of the Google News news aggregator. A treemap visualization algorithm helps display the enormous amount of information gathered by the aggregator.

Treemaps are traditionally space-constrained visualizations of information. Newsmap's objective takes that goal a step further and provides a tool to divide information into quickly recognizable bands which, when presented together, reveal underlying patterns in news reporting across cultures and within news segments in constant change around the globe.

всё хорошо, только я пока не смог застигнуть эту штуковину за работой :(( приходится пока верить джошу рубину: "Newsmap - the most impressive news headline visualization software I have ever seen. Many designers have attempted to create new formats for communicating recency, relevance and volume for news headlines, and the results have often been pretty. Newsmap is visually stunning, but it goes a step further than the others by being useful and usable as well. - Newsmap"

на самом сайте Newsmap есть несколько примеров treemaps; но визуально это всё равно не карты никакие, конечно. была в своё время программа, которая действительно рисовал карты новостей, полностью используя все географические метафоры (расстояния, высоты, рельеф местности); сдулась куда-то, хотя успела во все соответствующие книжки войти.
