Free registration required

Executive Summary

The authors describe the iterative design and implementation of "Spheres of Influence," an interactive digital multimedia installation in a public space that visualizes the spatial, temporal, and semantic dimensions of online international news reporting. The installation invites the casual passerby to explore a continually growing collection of up-to-the-minute news reports and images through interactive browsing and visualization. Once engaged, the system helps users examine how interest in a particular news story rises and falls over time and space, and illustrates how news travels around the globe.
