Mapping Tools

StoryMapJS / Gigapixel

Google My Maps

Fairly robust GIS, bound to Google maps and satellite images, bound to your Google account, ability to share and publish, but not collaborate.



Free, open, mobile-device bound geospatial data collection/field data collection.  Can build forms and use without network connection.  Syncing once back on-network.  Integrates with GIS applications.



Crowdsourced map.  Local contexts.





Full-featured GIS.  F/LOSS.  Lots to learn, but does A LOT.  Both presentation and analysis.


Omeka with Neatline

A plugin for Omeka that permits mapping and route-building.
