NOTICE: THIS PROJECT IS NOW CLOSED AND WILL RESUME PRIVATELY IN FUTURE.

IT IS ARCHIVED HERE FOR REFERENCE AFTER MY GRADUATION.

A geographic search engine of news stories and a place to build curated timelined maps journalling specific focuses.

Community led application which compiles an indexed, searchable geographic map of news stories from around the world.

Search specific topics or explore the world map for interesting stories. Use the calendar functionality to go back in time to explore news stories of the past.

Atlaski is kindly hosted by the University of Brighton at Brighton Domains.

Searchable

All news stories pulled by Atlaski's community of curators are searchable in a centralised map anyone can use.

Leveraging the power of Laravel's Scout Search indexed stories are quickly explorable.

Curator Community

Registered curators can create specialised maps of their own, focused on a specific set of news media sources & defined set of keywords. 

Atlaski will do the leg work; automatically geo-locating stories and placing them on the world map, pulling titles, descriptions, dates & thumbnail images. Curators maintain these specialised maps, editing & tidying when the system makes mistakes or extra clarification is needed.

Curators power Atlaski, without a curator community no stories are indexed. It is from these curated maps that the publicly searchable stories are sourced.
