Want to tell your story but not sure if you have to the right skills to get it done? Meograph is a new (launched this week!) four-dimensional storytelling tool that may be just what you need.
Users share multimedia "moments" that are mapped both geographically and chronologically on an interactive timeline. You can enrich your story easily with Google Maps, Google Earth, video, audio and photos. The final product is easy to share and publishes instantly to the Internet.
Here's what Meograph has to say for itself:
"Meograph helps easily create, watch and share interactive stories. Our first product combines maps, timeline, links and multimedia to tell stories in context of where and when. Authoring is structured into a few simple prompts on an intuitive surface. Viewers get a new form of media they can watch in two minutes or explore for an hour. Sharing is easy: the two most viral types of media are videos and infographics...Meograph is both."
This platform just might revolutionize storytelling. Journalists have already been using Meopath to share breaking news stories (see samples here), but starting this week, WE have the freedom to create, share and explore with the best of them!
