The aim of the paper is to present the first results of the CityMurmur project and to discuss the potential of the tool in the description of the new shape of the media-city. CityMurmur aims to show how different media differently describe the urban space through a set of maps resulting from the intersection of news sources and the geographical reality of the city.

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to present the first results of the CityMurmur project and to discuss the potential of the tool in the description of the new shape of the media-city. CityMurmur aims to show how different media differently describe the urban space through a set of maps resulting from the intersection of news sources and the geographical reality of the city. In this context, cartography is taken into consideration not as passive representation of reality but as a tool for interpretation and action on the urban space. In the first part of the paper the concept and objectives behind the project are explained, the second part aims at providing a description of the CityMurmur Project, in the final part some preliminary results and case studies are discussed.
