Telling stories with maps.
helpingmedia's insight:

From the site: "StoryMapJS is a free tool to help you tell stories on the web that highlight the locations of a series of events. StoryMapJS is currently in an alpha release, which means that we're looking for early adopters to try it out and give us some feedback. We're working on a user-friendly authoring tool, but for now, you will have to be comfortable looking up the geocodes for your locations yourself and creating a JSON data file. If you're ready to get started, read our advanced documentation and give it a try. You can use our support forumto post questions, or email support@knightlab.zendesk.com."

This is a tool and a practice I want to do more with. Maybe with the backpack in Alaska.

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."

Please add your comments or experience of using this tool in the box below so everyone can benefit.

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.
