Abstract

Glocal News is a web app, a mashup of Google News and Google Maps, which attempts to visualize top local news, globally, in 70 languages. The news headlines, which are displayed on an infowindow, are provided by the public Google News RSS. The algorithm, built in JavaScript, uses geocoding in order to extract the toponym from a given location and the local storage technique in order to store the news temporary on the user’s browser.
