My colleagues at WashingtonPost.com have launched TimeSpace: World, a way to dig through articles, video, photos and commentary in any given day from across the globe.
The method takes away the hierarchy imposed by a page layout. Instead, you get to quickly filter what you’re interested in and embed or share it by clicking on the “share” button to the right of the overlay.
This is the second iteration of TimeSpace, and there are more improvements to come, including a “play the day” feature. You’ll be seeing more changes in January.
Other news organizations, particularly in Europe, have come up with news maps of their own. Got any favorites?
