Mapeas - World News on a Map

Mapeas is a new service for geographically exploring the news. Mapeas places sports, entertainment, business, science, and general news stories on a map. Click any circle on the map to zoom-in on a location and select a story. Stories are provided by ABC, NBC, Fox, the Associated Press, and AFP. Stories are linked to articles for further reading and or to videos.

Thanks to Larry Ferlazzo for the link.

Applications for Education
Mapeas could be a great resource for anyone that requires students to read global news stories. Students can locate stories by location which provides a geographic context for the stories they read.
