Odyssey.js: examples in the wild
Following the release of the new Odyssey.js tool to create map based interactive stories here you have some projects that are already using it:
New York Daily News story
On July 9th New York Daily News published an investigation where they tracked 16 shooting incidents that occurred in a 48 hours period. They used Odyssey.js to tell the story in a different way using a map to give context to the facts related. Using an slide template the US newspaper geolocalized the reported incidents of gunfire and told the victims version.
They also used a CARTO map to show in an interactive way the data of 20 years of gun violence in different parts of New York City. Through this map readers can easily see which neighborhoods are more violent than others and how that has evolved during these years.
The Voyage of the HMS Beagle
HMS Beagle ship left England for her second voyage on 27 December 1831. The ship was captained by Robert FitzRoy and carried a then young Charles Darwin. During the expedition Darwin kept a diary of his experiences and rewrote this as a book. In this Odyssey.js story you can recreate this Charles Darwin’s famous journey.
