I have yet to try this but it looks a great way to create interactive maps and embed them in your site.

This from the site's blurb "Create interactive maps and embed them on your site. Great for keeping track of an event and linking back to archived information."

The geo quiz option is great! You can make very entertaining as well as educational geo games. We have used it on the travel web site of Aftenposten, Norway's largest newspaper, and it has been tremendously popular among readers. For an example, check out this example (in Norwegian):

This is very useful for Map. I try to set alarm map about humanrights in VN: http://www.umapper.com/maps/view/id/164196/

The problem is: I upload media like photo, audio many time, but system notice: Error loading.

I used dipity to curate news items on a timeline for the Nigel Brennan/Amanda Lindhout Somalia kidnap story. See here:

Thanks for that, great example. How easy was it to create?

Very straightforward. Although, I seem to remember having to restart the RSS feed from delicious every now and then.<br/><br/>The embedding feature is very useful. If you are already using a social bookmarking tool to follow a story, it's just a case of slotting the appropriate tag into the dipity rss to update the dipity on your site.<br/><br/>I used it for a couple of stories for the Frontline Club<br/><br/>http://www.dipity.com/frontlineclub/
