Interactive maps play an increasingly important part in various fields including journalism, education, traveling, and entertainment, among others. Interactive maps require interactive user engagement. The scope of this interaction can vary from the basic mouse scroll to the complex logical sequence of steps including extensive toolboxes. One of the major applications of interactive maps is in storytelling. A map serves as a powerful tool to tell a story and modern technologies make this tool flexible and potent.
