Tired of jumping from one website to another to find the latest news online? Hubii, a web application, gives you faster access to news, & lets you browse international headlines in a completely different way. It provides users with a map, and lets them search for various news content based on locations. As you move through different locations on the map, the news content displayed to the left changes accordingly. You may use the Mapfilter option to filter news by date, language, time and more. Another useful and interesting feature of Hubii is Mapazine, your personal magazine that you can customize by subscribing to various publishers from whatever locations you desire. If you cant find a particular publisher, just click Contribute, and add one by providing the URL for the publisher’s RSS feed. Hubii minimizes the time you spend looking for the news; instead, it brings you the news.
To start off, zoom into a geographical area, and find the latest news as they change with the change in displayed region. Use the icons on the map to filter news by time, topic & language. As you move around the map and zoom in, you will notice that the news get updated according to the geographical location. Another very cool feature is the Heatmap, which shows where the latest news are being read and searched for.
You will find three control icons on the map, Contribute, Eyenew and Mapfilter. You can use these to control the way you see information.
The icons on the map show you where different online news are located. Click on Mapfilter to filter out the news.
