A leading topic of the GEOMEDIA project [1] focuses on the analysis of international relations through print media. In this demo paper, we show how techniques for Multi-Agent Systems aggregation [2,3] can be applied to the spatial and temporal aggregation of news. Two experiments show that the generated multi-resolution representations may draw attention to critical areas for the analysis.
