International Newsmap


I have been running a website called International Newsmap. It collects international news stories from news sites and classify them according to their geographic focus using Bayesian classifier and lexicon expansion technique. The sources of of news are English websites in the US, the UK, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Kenya, and South Africa.

The main difference of International Newsmap from event discovery systems such as GDELT is its ability to create own geographic dictionary automatically.
