Interactive News Map

Showcase local news from an engaging, visual perspective. This map plugin is populated with local content that your users can view stories from afar or street-level.

It displays a segment of local news based on settings you provide, which could be from the past week to a few months ago, and covering the entire city or just a few neighborhoods.

News Nearby Channel

Users can also click the menu icon to view a summary of local news nearby, including all of its popular categories and publishers who geotagged stories about them.
