Map of online newspapers around the world
Who said newspapers were on the verge of becoming extinct ? Newspaper Map is an impressive Google Maps mash-up which has found and located over 10,000 from around the world.

Map design purists will probably cringe at the cluttered appearance, but what the application lacks in prettiness it makes up for in simplicity and comprehensiveness. Each journal is categorized and colour-coded by language. Clicking on a marker brings up a list of Google Translate options providing instant access to the online paper in one of 20-odd languages.

There’s a light-weight version of the site for mobile devices, also an option for submitting new additions or corrections.

If you’ve not already seen it take a look at the similar, Newseum map, which shows today’s frontpages from news publications around the world.
