Where? Check out the Story Map!

Los Angeles Metblogs StorymapWe’re excited to announce that we’ve teamed up with the folks at outside.in to bring Story Maps to LA Metblogs (as well as most of our US sites). Astute readers will note these have been live for a few days now but you know with the weekend and beta testing and stuff, we thought it might be best to hold off until today to throw a big fuss about them. So commence fuss throwing immediately. These little maps which you’ll find on the right side of the site will give you a visual representation of where what we’re talking about is. At a glance you can see which posts relate to what parts of town. We think they are super cool and hope you do too!

  1. “…So commence fuss throwing immediately…”

    Ok. If you insist.

    I did a view source for this page, but don’t see the geo Microformat. Why have a map if it isn’t binding the post to a machine resolvable location?

    http://microformats.org/wiki/geo

    That doesn’t make any sense.

  2. The map in the post is an just an example image. The map on the right is packed full of geo goodness. If it’s functioning differently then you’d like you should talk to Outside.In – they built it using our posts.
