About Global Snapshot

Major events play out across the globe every day. And even though news stories have saturated media outlets, finding a source for news that is trusted and easily digestible is hard.

The New York Times Global Snapshot geographically maps the most popular New York Times stories from the home page and world section on an interactive webpage. You can see where the most popular news is playing out across the globe, rather than sifting through a list of articles. Why not visualize the news, instead of just reading it?

How should you use this tool?

Use your mouse and the zoom buttons in the bottom right to move around the map around. Hover over a story to see the story's title and location, and click on the story to read the abstract. If you are interested, just follow the link to the full story by clicking "Read Story"

Happy exploring!
