In a first of its kind interactive map application, Barbados is using advanced map technology to illustrate the story of Barbados in the soon-to-be-published book Rogues in Paradise. Mapping Travel Literature is a GEOCADDER application that tells a story visually and interactively to enliven the story and display content related to locations in the book.
Mapping Travel Literature Brings The Story To Life
It is traditionally used to map and visualize resources, people, business operations, farmings, sport, tourism environment, and land use. This latest application animates the story of Barbados Rogues in Paradise. The story is about people, places, and history in 38 chapters. The people places history and events noted in the chapters relate to locations on the island. By clicking on the Table of Contents in the online documents, readers can navigate the chapters and read a summary. The maps can also animate tours and trips of the island that include events, places, and characters mentioned in the book.
Maps and books about maps or mapping have been around long before the digital age. Before photography and television, printed and hand-colored maps told the story of exploration and discovery. Maps are no stranger to storytelling. Mapping America illustrates maps of the Renaissance and the American Revolutionary War. Yet one does not often see interactive digital maps as an aid to navigating a true novel. Static maps often help give location context to a novel, but navigating a book with a GEOCADDER interactive visualization has never been done before.
What is New In Mapping for Travel and Tourism
The interactive map in the book Rogues in Paradise is a new way to navigate the story. Every chapter is about the outrageous characters, rogues, and heroes of the book. Where they live and where the story takes place is mapped, and online readers can simply click a chapter to read the summary. History and events are also related to locations that are similarly mapped. You can do this with google maps, but the Rogues application is built on GEOCADDER, making it very fluid, fast, and fun to zoom around the island and navigate the story.
