Newspaper Map

Posted by on Feb 6, 2013 in Maps in the News | 2 comments

Today’s map for Maps in the News is just that, a newspaper map. It is an interactive map of the locations of all the newspapers left in the world. There are bright buttons all over it, and the legend to the right shows the color code for each language. There are also  filters by language to make it easy as pie to plan your trip around the availability of newspapers you can actually read. There appear to be no newspapers in Greenland.

Click on the map to take you to the interactive version. I have no idea who is making this map, or I would tell you. Let me know if you figure it out.

  1. I don’t know if you found any additional information about this but as a research librarian I dug this up. Newspaper Map http://newspapermap.com.
    In the Newspaper Map you can find newspapers from all over the world, most of them possible to translate to and from many languages with one click. With over 10,000 newspapers available from around the world this site is a great place to search for recent news events, or to locate local newspapers in a specific geographical area. Search by newspaper or place (city, state, country, etc.) you may also filter your search by language. Other tools available allow you to limit by major newspapers, or for historical newspapers (a new beta feature). A note of caution: this site may be addicting!
