Yahoo goes global with news mapping

Yahoo has combined its RSS feed of top news stories with a geo-encoding function of Yahoo Maps to create the Newsglobe (screenshot below). Fairly self-explanatory, it’s updated every few minutes and indicates the ranking of the news story by the size of the red bar plotting the story.

According to the developer’s blog, the globe could be adapted to show feeds of news by location or defined by specific search terms
