Mapping Half a Million Hours of the Internet Archive's TV Archive: Interactive Geographic Search

In collaboration with the Internet Archive Kalev mapped nearly half a million hours of American television news programming covering the last three years. Using "fulltext geocoding" computer algorithms, the closed captioning of each broadcast was processed entirely by computer to identify, disambiguate, and map every mention of a location worldwide. This interactive map allows you to select a date range and television station to interactive drill into the geography of American Television News programming over the last three years and see how each station differs in its coverage of the world.
