Mapping, timelines and visualisation

A few examples of what these tools can be used for – and some particularly good uses.

Knightlab Juxtapose

A lovely tool that allows you to wipe back and forth to compare two shot of the same image at different times. I used Google Earth to generate these identical views of Media City over ten years

Google Maps

A map of the River Wear created by a former student of mine. It shows the various locations for former shipyards along the river. Each marker has some information about the individual shipyards and, in some cases, uses secondary media to illustrate how they appeared.

Knightlab Timeline

Towards the bottom of this page is an excellent example of how a Timeline can add genuine value to a story

Practical Periscope

Here’s a short, edited video of the Groups 3 Online Journalism’s short but sweet experience of Periscope, downloaded via Katch, edited using Youtube Editor and published to Youtube.
