Creating Story Maps and Timelines with free Knight Lab tools
Knight Lab’s Suite of Tools
In this workshop, we discuss our experience using two of Knight Lab’s most popular tools: TimelineJS and StoryMapsJS. These platforms are compatible as third-party applications for the Alliance for Networking Visual Culture’s open-source digital publishing platform Scalar. We drew from Knight Lab’s innovative suite of tools in the development of the Ododo Wa Community Dialogues.
The tools facilitate:
Narrativizing existing digital materials;
Visualizing data through interactive digital methods;
Tools and structure to generate and curate digital material;
Reduced barriers between knowledge producers and community;
