In my earlier submit about the best way to create a narrative map I featured a software referred to as StoryMap JS. That software is nice for making story maps which have not more than about twenty scenes. Any greater than that and the method turns into a bit cumbersome and tedious. Happily, there are instruments that you need to use to rapidly map quite a lot of data without delay.
Google’s My Maps software enables you to import a Google Sheet and have the information from that sheet displayed as placemarks on an interactive map. Watch this video that I created to be taught how one can create a map primarily based on information in a Google Sheet.
Felt is a comparatively new multimedia mapping software. In your Felt account you’ll be able to add a CSV or Excel file and have the information throughout the spreadsheet distributed as placemarks and or polygons on a map. After the information is initially loaded you’ll be able to then customise the design of your map by altering the colour, dimension, and form of the placemarks and polygons. You may as well customise the dimensions and colour of the labels in your map after the spreadsheet information has been imported onto your map. Watch my video under to learn to show your spreadsheet information on a Felt map.
