Abstract

MapStory is an online social cartographic platform that empowers a community of experts to crowd-source and peer review data within a geospatial and temporal framework. Mapstory uses GeoNode, a spatial data infrastructure solution that extends the OpenGeo Architecture with several advanced features such as participatory or collaborative mapping, advanced customization, social network capabilities and metadata catalog solutions. It serves as a data repository for thematic spatial-temporal visualizations uploaded by its users. Information can be organized into StoryLayers which serve as the building blocks of a MapStory and are organized based on theme, location, and region and time information. This categorization of StoryLayers facilitate easier access for users in creating developing a spatial-temporal narrative known as a MapStory.
