Mapping Knowledge: A Narrative Mapping Workshop

 Set up for Google Maps:

  1. Log into Google (with a non-Hawkmail account)
  2. Navigate to http://maps.google.com
  3. Click on the icon with three horizontal bars in the left-hand side of the search bar.
  4. Click on “My Maps.”
  5. Click on “Create Map” and give your map a title and a description by clicking on the words “Untitled Map” in the upper-left hand side of the screen and completing the empty fields.
  6. To add locations to your map, type a location in the search box, (e.g. 221B Baker Street, London), click on the resulting point, and then click “Add to Map”

 Editing Google Maps Data

  1. First, let’s add text
    1. Click on the location, then click on the icon of a pencil
    2. Type a title and description for the location
    3. Click “Save”
  2. Next, let’s add an image to a location
    1. Click on the icon of a camera.
    2. Do a Google image search for your location, choose a picture of the area, click on the image you want, and click “Select”
    3. Click “Save” to save your picture.
  3. Next, let’s color-coordinate the locations
    1. Each location is listed in the box on the left; hover over your location in the box on the left and click on the icon of a paint-bucket that appears on the right.
    2. Select a color and shape from the drop down menu to determine the appearance of the location pins.
  4. Finally, let’s add lines to connect the locations
    1. Figure out the order you’d like the locations to have
    2. Click the icon that looks like several dots connected with lines and select “Add line or Shape” (or “Add Walking Route” if the characters walk between the points).
    3. Click on each location in order and hit enter when you’re done.
    4. Give the line a name and a description.
    5. To change the line’s appearance or color, hover over the name of the line in the left-hand box alongside the locations and click the paint-bucket icon that appears.
    6. Select the desired color and line width.
  5. Let’s share the map
    1. In the upper-left part of the screen, click the word “Share”
    2. To let others see your map, click on the word “Change” in blue
    3. Select “Anyone with link” to let anyone with the map link see your map
  6. To let other people collaborate on your map, type their email addresses into the box labeled “Invite people”

Using Mapbox:

Mapbox (https://www.mapbox.com/editor) is another great mapping program that lets you customize things a little more and makes more elegant maps. However, it doesn’t let multiple people edit the same map simultaneously, so collaboration is harder.

 Importing Data:

  1. Make a Mapbox account (https://www.mapbox.com/editor) and log in.
  2. Click the button labeled “New Mapbox Editor Project.”
  3. Click “Style,” then click on the map style you want from the resulting list.
  4. Click on “Project,” -> “Settings” and give your project a title and a description.
  5. Click the “Save” button.

Adding and Editing Data:

  1. Click on the icon of a magnifying glass, type in your address, and hit enter.
  2. Click on the point that appears on the map to add it to your map.
  3. A window will pop up on the left. Add the title and description in the text fields
  4. Click the word “Style”at the bottom of the new window to select the color and size of the location icon.
  5. Click the word “Symbol” next to the word “Style” to add your favorite icon symbol to the location.
  6. To find an image for a location:
    1. Do a Google image search (https://images.google.com/) for your location to find the perfect image.
    2. Once you’ve found it, Click it, then click “View image” in the next window, and copy the new URL to get the image URL (NOTE: it should end with .jpg, .png, or .tif).
  7. Go back to your Mapbox project, and click “Text” again.
    1. Click at the end of your description in the “Add a description” field
    2. Type <img src=”URL”> (replacing URL with the URL you copied in step 6.2)
    3. For example, if I wanted this picture of Baker Street associated with Baker street, I would type <img src= “https://shipscooksstuff.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/baker3.jpg“>
    4. Click the “Save” button.
  8. Remember the order for your locations, and get ready to draw lines.
    1. Click the “Line” button, then click on the correct points in order.
    2. Double-click on the final location.
    3. Give the line a name (e.g. “Order of events in “A Scandal in Bohemia”) and a color.
    4. Click the “Save” button.
  9. To see what your map looks like, click “Project” -> “Info,” and copy and paste the URL listed under “Share” into a browser.
