Want to know where breaking news is taking place in your neighborhood? Our Hometown, Inc., based in Clifton Springs, N.Y., has introduced Points Mentioned, a new product that will help newspapers target locations in their online stories. By using a simple algorithm, Points Mentioned zooms in on locations mentioned in an article — whether it’s the next city council meeting or a person’s place of birth in an obituary.
PointsMentioned is a tool that reporters can use to quickly create maps to go along with their online stories. PointsMentioned uses “natural language processing” to automatically identify addresses, cross-streets, and specific sites mentioned in articles, and then generates maps based on those geocoded locations.
...what if the work of producing a news website could be outsourced? What if having an online presence required no additional effort from your paper's precious few reporters? That's where Our Hometown comes in.
