Story Map about where I traveled in 2017


I was inspired by the blog Data Sketches, from their data visual topic on travel. If they could create visuals of their past travel vacations from years ago, then I could too. I don’t have the skill sets to create such pretty data visuals, so I found a program that I can easily use to represent my travel vacation from 2017. From the same creators of Timeline JS, they made Story Map JS.

Story Map JS helps create stories with videos and images through a map.

The first step that I did was look at all the pictures from my Google Photos, social media, and from my parents and sibling’s social media as well. I organized the pictures to where I traveled in 2017.

Check out my Story Map here.

  1. When she showed this in class I was in amazement of how many places you have been. This was a very cool tracking tool you should continue to add to it everytime you leave lol
