Recently at my internship with CartoDB I’ve been helping test and document a new open-source tool called Odyssey which makes it easy for anyone to tell stories with maps. For part of the testing process I created an example story based on Darwin’s Voyage. The content comes from this Wikipedia article and the latitude & longitude coordinates for each location are from GeoHack. Odyssey makes it super easy to publish your work either through a link to a full page view, an iframe embed or by downloading the html, css, and js files to publish on your own server. I’m really looking forward to seeing what kinds of stories people will tell using this tool! Here is a link to the full story I created.
