Mapping the Crisis in Gaza

British newspaper The Independent has an interesting feature called 'Mapping the Crisis', featuring a node-link graph (which I've mentioned before) attemping to map the articles and discussion from the paper's coverage of the current political situation in Israel/Gaza.

<!-- more -->The navigation is a bit unwieldy, but it is a neat take on trying to connect article facts and user comments on disparate (but related) stories and site content.

More information on some nodes is provided by popups, although clear citations and links seem to be lacking, perhaps they're just getting intercepted by my pop-up blocker; hard to say.

Regardless it's worth checking out, and even if this example falls a bit flat, it's still nice to see a paper trying to 'connect the dots' in novel ways.
