So, what is MapStorytelling?
MapStorytelling is the process of sharing perspectives on how differentphenomena play out across space, and over time. MapStorytellers use digital
maps, open data, multimedia tools, and old fashioned reection to communicate
important issues to a global audience. MapStories can be broad, implicating thewhole Earth, or narrowed down to a single neighborhood. They can address any
topic someone might care about –human trafcking, international trade, climate
change, wars, musical styles, sports, etc. In short, they are attempts to provideus with “a true picture, whatever it is.”
How do I start MapStorytelling on Campus?
 This Campus Start-Up Guide will show you how to:
Begin telling your own MapStories at mapstory.org
Launch a MapStorytelling chapter to bring people together on campus
Lead the global MapStory community and help shape its future
College is a time in life when we nd ourselves at a crossroads betweenpast and future – between old homes and new horizons. It is also a timewhen we have great power to catalyze improvements in the world. Whateverour passion or career interest might be, as college students we have thefreedom to get involved, bring people together, test new ideas, and learn
from mistakes.
At MapStory, we believe that the rst step to improving the world is seekingto understand it. And we think one good way to enhance our understandingis through a process we call MapStorytelling. Through MapStorytelling, weforce ourselves to listen to history, and to those we seek to benet, therebyincreasing our chances to do good well.
