The GDELT Project keeps an eye on the global mass media and monitors news from broadcast, print, and web sources in more than 100 languages from virtually every part of the world. The Project facilitates the identification of counts, emotions, events, incidents, images, locations, people, quotes, sources, themes, and other parameters that influence day to day activities around the world. The GDELT Geo API supports the creation of maps of arbitrary keywords or phrases. This way, the entry of an English keyword automatically generates a map of each location appearing in the sentences of the keyword across the entire content GDELT has monitored through 65 live machine-translated languages over the previous 24 hours. The API returns responses in GeoJSON format.
