Maps as Storytelling Tools

The ability to annotate maps has brought about a few interesting, creative uses of maps in story telling. Two recent examples I’ve come across include the New York Times map: Walking in Holden’s Footsteps and a map I discovered on McSweeneys’ titled Mr. Plimpton’s Revenge (shown below) that uses the map to tell a story.


Both are interesting examples of non-traditional story telling.
