Graphic narratives for emergency mapping

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Graphic narratives offer a promising strategy for improving cartographic communication in a crisis. A multimedia solution that recognizes an inherent need for more than one map, graph, diagram, or text screen, the graphic narrative promotes interpretation and understanding through an ordered, coherent sequence of displays. This paper discusses the graphic script and other concepts of narrative graphics, reports on the Atlas Touring Project and the development and evaluation of two prototype graphic scripts, and explores the relevance of the project's findings to emergency management. -from Author
