New feature in PageOneX.com: now you can switch topics on and off in the data visualization just by clicking on the topics in the legend.
New ways to understand your data.
Activate, deactivate layers and enjoy.
The embed code we announced two weeks ago is now available to everyone.
Now you can copy paste directly from the the embed code to insert a PageOneX visualization in your site. Check at the bottom right and share your PageOneX dataviz where you need them.
It still needs some fixes of height and zoom level, but I am sure you will work it out.
Besides, we’ve also redesigned the display view to make it more compact and show the dataviz in a more prominent way. We’ve also avoided the duplication of the topics list.
Tell us how do you like it.
Now you can embed a PageOneX thread in your site:
You can check this thread at PageOneX > Corrupción España. Octubre 2013.
To get the embedded version you just need to add “/embed” at the end of the url http://pageonex.com/numeroteca/corrupcion-espana-octubre-2013/embed
and embed that web page with an iframe.
This version of the display view is the same as the normal thread, but wihout the header (navigation bar, description, vertical legend) and footer.
You will have to play with the scale and height of the div and iframe to make it look good.
Code to embed:
<div id="wrap" style="width: 100%; height: 490px; padding: 0; overflow: hidden;">
<iframe style="width: 1280px; height: 700px; -ms-zoom: 0.68; -transform: scale(0.68);
-moz-transform: scale(0.68); -moz-transform-origin: 0 0; -o-transform: scale(0.68);
-o-transform-origin: 0 0; -webkit-transform: scale(0.68); -webkit-transform-origin: 0 0;
max-width: none; overflow: hidden; border: 1px solid white;"
Another example about Coverage of Gezi Park protests in Turkish newspapers last June.
The front page images in the display view are displayed differently if they have been coded or not. It makes easier for the user to know intuitively which images have been coded (more transparent) with the ones that hasn’t (more opaque).
I’ve been testing with different opacities: make both uncoded and coded images lose opacity, and color codes to lose transparency. Related commit.
Check the tests:
and the finaland chosen selection:
I finally installed the PageOneX real size project with stories related to guns, wars and terrorism. Come visit the display this week to the second floor of building E14 at MIT Media Lab. Thanks all of you that helped in this process: Adrienne, Luis, Álvaro, Nacho and Matjaz!
What follows is a photographic guide to the PageOneX real size installation. Continue reading
After the post Guns vs Sports vs Wars I wanted to test news by location: local, for news related to the city or region where the newspaper is published; national for US news; and continent (as Ethan suggested). This visualizations fits pretty well with the previous one, as it fills the gaps of the more locally oriented newspapers like The Boston Globe and LA Times.
I do not think I will use this approach in the final PageOneX real size version, but it is interesting to view the same newspapers coded by different ways. I can imagine a par of special glasses that would allow the viewer shift from one visualization to another.
Note: I have only coded the main news (only the big ones).

I am preparing a project for a physical display of a PageOneX visualization at the MIT Media Lab Festival for April 2013. I blogged about it and also gathered some references about front pages in art and cinema.
We’ve opened (with Rogelio López) a section of the website to gather articles and books related to front page analysis.
Help us get more examples of front page analysis!
In the last post I’ve did an overview of how Coding works, so in this post I’ll walk you through the Display view and how it works
Let’s start with the basic structure of the display view it self;
Display view is divided mainly into three horizontal sections
