Ground is the ONLY news app featuring news on a map. Ground’s map shows all breaking news as it happens on a hyperlocal, easy-to-navigate, interactive map that our team created. Each zoom the user chooses to make will take them to yet another layer of local news. Also, Ground’s map removes the geographical bias so users can scroll to see news from every part of the world. For example, you can read stories from Icelandic news organizations - and we’ll even translate it for you!
Ground’s map is a wonderful way to ‘explore’ news happening around the globe news based on your geographical interests. We put the control in our users hands so that they can review the news they want to read instead of a one-dimensional algorithm making the
decision for them and packaging it in a conventional feed.
