Locus is a news archive visualisation that was created for DataArt. We used the Guardian Open Platform because it provides an API that can be queried by date, and an archive going back over 10 years. Guardian articles are mapped to places over time, creating a spatial & temporal trace of events and media attention in the last decade

Each place is represented as a geo located dot that scales in proportion to that places appearance in the news. As the time slider selection changes the circles grow and shrink giving a picture of which locations are in the news at any given time. To see the all the news articles mapped, you can extend the time slider to the full search period. You can click on the places to see the news headlines for that place and time period, and click through to the online articles at the Guardian.
