Outside.in’s StoryMaps

posted by Jason Kottke   Sep 18, 2008

Outside.in has launched a new feature called StoryMaps. When you sign up, they crawl your blog looking for mentions of places and then make a map of your posts. It doesn’t work so well for my site (mostly because — giggedy — kottke.org is all over the map, har har), but for sites that post about a lot of local stuff, it works pretty well. See Gothamist’s implementation, for instance. More on the outside.in blog. (Disclosure: I am an advisor to outside.in.)
