Mapping 400,000 hours of U.S. television news | Internet Archive (originally found via The Atlantic)

IA writes: 

We are excited to unveil a couple experimental data-driven visualizations that literally map 400,000 hours of U.S. television news. One of our collaborating scholars, Kalev Leetaru, applied “fulltext geocoding” software to our entire television news research service collection.

Bonus: view a very cool four-year time lapse animation here.

Extra-special: Sunlight gave a small grant to help the Internet Archive’s TV news project in 2012. :)

Finally, comprehensive online television news archive by Internet Archive

Yesterday, the folks at Internet Archive launched a robust online collection of more than 340,000 TV news programs from the past three years. The service, aptly called, TV News Search Borrow is awesome for a number of reasons.
First, it is easy to find relevant news coverage on a specific topic. The search digs through caption information provided by the networks and ranks your results. This is a huge improvement over the tools currently out there for video producers to find news coverage.

Rock family trees
For more than three decades, veteran music journalist Pete Frame has specialized in creating fantastic Rock Family Trees that map relationships between musicians and bands. In the comments on my post yesterday about our Ed Piskor’s Hip Hop Family Tree, commenter Preston Sruges pointed us to Frame’s family tree of New York New Wave, featuring the likes of Blondie, Talking Heads, Patti Smith, and The Ramones.
