These maps started out as a collaborative assignment with the APSU Woodward Library to showcase some historical photos in the university archives, and developed into a deployment of the same set of tools in very different fashion.
What it does
These story maps are a collection of narrative-centric visual tools to display spatial data, media, historical information, and contextual and instructional information. They can be deployed for a variety of purposes, with the focus here being on community history preservation, providing a visual learning and recruiting tool, and showcasing the vast and rich resources in our university archives.
How I built it
The maps are deployed in a variety of ways, some using templates, some with the html index modified for some visual changes.
