Points Mentioned is a tool for newspapers to create interactive, explanatory content from their own big data. Using natural language processing, our software automatically structures the newspaper content around the who, what, where, and when of the story. See the video below for a demo of our interactive maps on our hometown paper, the Finger Lakes Times.
We've developed apps and widgets that use this data in creative new ways. One example is News Bayou, our mobile app for hyperlocal news discovery, which uses your location to deliver a personalized news feed of what’s happening near you.
