  2. Geolocation is an asset. It allows for more detailed forms of content production and opens up new location-based revenue streams. Newscoop 4 allows journalists to effortlessly attach one or more locations to an article and then overlay this data onto their preferred map service (Newscoop supports Google Maps, Mapquest Open and OpenStreetMap). For peace of mind, data is located on your server, not with the map provider.

    Attach urls, images, videos and more to the map points and then let your theme build Dynamic Maps, pulling in map data according to filters you specify (e.g. tags, keywords, date, geographical area). Use this to investigate crime trends, historical news archives or to build a truly hyperlocal news site.

  3. Breaking news is online media's forte and Newscoop is designed to make the process of rearranging your front page easy through a drag and drop interface. Journalists and editors have the option of adding every article to the front page, and then simply dragging that article around to determine where on the page it appears.

    What's more, these Featured Article Lists can also be used in other parts of the site, so you can create flexible lists of just about anything. Use them to bring together articles and create dynamic sections or in-depth reports with multiple articles from your archive.

  4. Great photography is a must for the modern online news site - one article's photo can appear in many places - front page, articles, thumbnails. Newscoop helps your journalists get it right every time, by providing an easy interface to view and edit how the image will look on every part of the site.

    Browse the archive, select the photo, and then easily crop each image rendition individually, or just set to default. It even warns you if the image is too small and therefore likely to appear low quality, meaning you can have quality control and speed of publishing.

  5. We encourage newspapers to keep their heads in the cloud. Full SoundCloud integration means you can publish, attach, edit and upload SoundCloud audio files without leaving Newscoop. A specially-designed plugin comes as standard; perfect for papers who produce a lot of sound content and want to share it.
