There are a couple ways you can make a StoryMap.
Add a slide for each place in your story. Setting the location is as easy as a text search for the name, address, or latitude and longitude. You can change the visual style of your map with a few presets, or you can use Mapbox to create your own style.
You can tell stories with large photographs, works of art, historic maps, and other image files. Because it works best with pixel-dense files, we call these
gigapixel. Setting one up requires you to host files on a web server.
StoryMap JS can pull in media from a variety of sources. Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, Vine, Dailymotion, Google Maps, Wikipedia, SoundCloud, Document Cloud and more!
