Global Attention Profiles

Writes Heath Row: “Ethan Zuckerman is working on a project that tracks global media attention. He maps what countries newspapers and media outlets such as the Washington Post are paying attention to, color coding them to indicate how ‘hot’ they are. He’s been tracking global media attention since late June.”

More on the project: “GAP – the Global Attention Profiles project – tracks the attention that selected news media outlets pay to different nations of the world. A set of automated programs performs 1700 web searches every day to determine what nations news media outlets are paying the most attention to and presents this information in table and map form. GAP also correlates media attention to different development statistics, including national GDP and population. GAP maps of media attention include maps of the relationship between attention and GDP or population.”
