How does the "first world" view the rest of the globe? Apparently not much at all. Vanishing Point is a database-driven map system that translates top news stories in key papers in G7 countries into a visibility map—the most visible get the most news coverage. "The goal of this project is to decipher the world that news media reconfigures and to observe if media coverage, or lack thereof, is creating a new cartography."
