Mapping humanitarian news with GDELT and IRIN

The GDELT blog today features a visualisation of IRIN coverage over the last few months. See below.

"In a similar vein to our past maps of A Week in the Life of the World's News Media and A Month of BBC vs the New York Times, we're excited to offer our latest entrant into the realm of mapping the geography of the world's news outlets: three months of IRIN's global humanitarian news and analysis! The animated GIF movie below shows every worldwide location identified in coverage monitored from IRIN over the last three months, cumulatively added to the map over time by day.  In just 10 seconds you are seeing the geographic focus of IRIN from late February to late May 2015!"
