Mapping A Line in the Sand
The Line in the Sand Map is a really well designed Mapbox map which contains video interviews with residents who live along the route of the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline in Canada. The Northern Gateway Pipelines Project plans to build a twin pipeline from Bruderheim, Alberta, to Kitimat, British Columbia.
The Line in the Sand is a collaborative campaign to help share the opinions and stories of those who will be directly affected by the pipeline. This video map is a part of that project, which will eventually become a feature-length documentary.
I've done a lot of video mapping myself over the years and I really like the video thumbnail markers on this map. If you mouse-over a marker it expands a little and plays a silent preview of the video. Click on the marker and the video will open and play.
