Mapbox released a new tool with a plug-and-play format for quickly publishing interactive experiences with high-quality map visuals. The storytelling template allows users to input copy, select elements of the map they want to feature for each “chapter,” and publish. The format -- sometimes called scrollytelling -- lets the user include as much context as needed, and to define the map locations for viewing. The template allows easy output and publication of datasets and can be used to compare demographic data in different cities, share reports about factory site output, highlight housing market trends, communicate interactive travel itineraries, and display migratory patterns.
