Researchers at scientific and academic conferences often make posters that use text and graphics to provide a brief summation of their work.
Inspired by this idea, we created a tool for mappers to create their own way to summarize the conclusions of a map
, add a narrative layer over a map
, point to key aspects of map
, and many other creative uses.
consists of an Introduction (with a lavender background) and optionally one or more Items
(silver-grey background). The Introduction
can include text, videos and images and the Items
can arranged vertically and horizontally in two columns.
Optionally, an Item
can point to, and open, a specific view of a map – with an clickable icon identifying and launching the relevant view – and, when a Poster
points to one or maps, the Poster
is added automatically to the Posters>>
drop down menu for the relevant map(s), which is displayed beneath the map. Posters
also have their own URLs; so you can link to them directly to provide simple pathways into Debategraphs for readers who aren't familiar yet with this exciting new visual form.
