Wandora's New York Times Event Search API extractor makes an request to the New York Times Event Search API and converts the response to topics and associations. As with all other data in Wandora the extracted topics and associations may be modified, merged and visualized with the tools provided in Wandora.
The extractor is located in the event search tab of the dialog found in File > Extract > News > New York Times API extractor
The extractor mirrors the API in the sense that it provides a geographical and a faceted as well as time based filtering method in addition to the free text search used to query the API.
Below the user searches for events where the facet category is "Jazz" and the limit for the amount of events extracted is 200. The results are first shown in Wandora and then in the browser using the Timeline service module
