The 2015 Masters Map

If you've been enthralled by the 2015 Masters over the last few days then you should have a look at this Interactive Course Map of Augusta National Golf Club.

This StoryMap.js created map takes you on a tour of Augusta using an aerial image of the course. As you progress through the StoryMap the map zooms in on each hole's tee and green. The map also features information on some of the other sights at Augusta, such as the club house and score board.

It's worth paying attention to the information provided in the map sidebar for each hole, which features links to view panoramic images taken at locations around the golf course.

If you want to create a similar story map from a photo or other image then you can learn how on this StoryMaps for Images tutorial. The tutorial includes instructions about how you can create the map-tiles from a photograph or other image.
