Visual map of Google News

I found this  nice way to wade through and find the popular items in Google News. Check out Newsmap. The largest squares are the most popular ones. It allows you pick the categories you want (see bottom right corner) and countries of interest (top of the screen) and pick prior dates as well (bottom left).

This form of rendering is called TreeMap Visualization and was researched at the Computer Science Dept at University of Maryland. You can read more about treemaps here and here.
