The Historical Salem Map Tour
This week seems to be all about telling stories with maps, from telling fictional stories with maps to creating scrolling narrative maps with jQuery WayPoints and Google Maps.
This week also saw the release of the new StoryMapJS library. This new library from Knight Lab helps users create their own mapped stories. Just in time for Halloween Boston.com has used the library to create an Interactive Tour of Salem Historical Sites.
The tour guides the user through many of Salem's historical locations, including the Salem Witch Museum, the Witch House, the Witch Dungeon Museum and the Witch Trials Memorial.
