StoryMapJS is a project by KnightLab which aims to help journalists and historians tell stories by using maps using a straight-forward and simple authoring tool. It is constructed around a framework of highlighting the locations of a series of events. As an editing tool, it is relatively intuitive and easy to use.
*Especially useful for journalists.

User creates timeline by completing a google sheets template. The Timeline then processes and generates the code for display. Minimal programming knowledge is required.
JuxtaposeJS helps tell stories by comparing two image frames, including photos and gifs. It provides a means, by a draggable pane, to see the changes and visually analyse the differences between the two images.
It’s an adaptable storytelling tool that is ideal for highlighting then/now stories that explain slow changes over time (growth of a city skyline, regrowth of a forest, etc.) or before/after stories that show the impact of single dramatic events (natural disasters, protests, wars, etc.).
