MediaMeter our suite of tools for quantitative text analysis of media coverage. Most of our tools are built on top of the MediaCloud online news database.

MediaMeter Dashboard

The Dashboard shows simplified widgets to give a quick overview of an issue's media coverage and let you identify interesting trends for more in-depth analysis. You can query the MediaCloud database by specifying media sources, a date range, and some keywords to look for.

MediaMeter Sources

Sources lets you browse all the media sources in the MediaCloud system. This is a handy way to understand what sources we cover, what sources are in a media set, and how much content we collect from each.

MediaMeter CLIFF

CLIFF is our entity extraction and geoparsing tool tuned for news articles. CLIFF parses raw text and pulls out people, organizations and places mentioned. We use CLIFF to tag articles in the MediaCloud database with places they mention, but you can use it for whatever you want.
