Mapping 400,000 Hours of U.S. TV News

“We are excited to unveil a couple experimental data-driven visualizations that literally map 400,000 hours of U.S. television news. One of our collaborating scholars, Kalev Leetaru, applied “fulltext geocoding” software to our entire television news research service collection. The CartoDB interactive mapping environment presents the algorithm’s best guesses for mentions of place names in the closed captioning of every news broadcast.” (via Internet Archive)
