Interactive Flash Maps

Advanced Cartography students create animated online map products under the direction of their instructor Steve Stewart. A static map is first designed in Adobe Illustrator to showcase the selected topic. All maps are then animated using Adobe Flash programming to tell a compelling story. The online, interactive story maps are viewable at the links below. This assignment requires students to research their topic and to make many cartographic decisions that affect the design of the map: color, line, projection, title, hierarchy, and timeline, to name a few.
