The goal is to show news headlines at their respective location on the map. At the beginning only the most important headlines are shown. You can zoom in to a specific region of your interest to show additional news concerning that region.

Click on a location name to open a list with additional news from that location.

The geotagging of news articles is done with a software developed by myself, the language models still have a lot room for optimization. Therefore errors can sometimes occur and are never the fault of the source.

I appreciate any feedback, wether on design, usability or feature suggestions
