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.

Newsmap's objective is to simply demonstrate visually the relationships between data and the unseen patterns in news media. Google News automatically groups news tories with similar content and places them based on algorithmic results into clusters. Currently, the internet presents a highly disorganized collage of information. Help me take some time off work and bring newsmap to the next level.
