DSSF - Mapping
DSSF - Mapping Online
Digital maps allow us to visualize data spatially, in modern, historical, and even fantastical constructs. Generally, digital mapping can be divided between narrative maps, that is, maps that follow a path and tell a story, and data-driven maps, or maps that are focused on visualizing various large sets of data (such as GIS). Today we will focus on maps that tell narratives using the ArcGIS Story Maps and Knight Lab StoryMapJS tools.
