Try Out EUMSSI Demo Now

The first demonstrator of EUMSSI search is out for testing. Find and explore content not only in text sources but also in audiovisual data. Several modes of visualising (“widgets”) let you approach topics in a new way.

We have assembled a large collection of data around one specific topic, which is fracking. Fracking is a technique to recover gas and oil from shale rock. You can find content in various sources including Deutsche Welle (articles, audio, video), The Guardian, Die Zeit, El Pais, Le Monde, Twitter and YouTube. The EUMSSI dataset, however, is not restricted to that topic, allowing for flexibility and scalability.
