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:
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.
