Create Story

Would you like to customize education material and create an own Vislet? Follow our tutorial videos to get the eXplorer platform explained, and a walk through of the basic functions like choosing region and data sets.

In this video, you can find everything you need to get started with creating visual stories, referred to simply as Stories. The educational material is made out of three videos where the process of creating Stories is explained. The videos show the platform eXplorer, with maps and data from World Data Bank. You don’t need anything else than a computer with internet to create your Story.

The tutorial videos describe the steps to create the Story in the World eXplorer, but the information is general and can be applied also in the Sweden and Europe eXplorer. Feel free to run the corresponding eXplorer when watching the tutorials, this allows you to pause the video and repeat the steps in the Storytelling process by yourself.

Load data and choose region

We will take you through the essential steps, to set which data and region we want to Storytell about. In the creation of this example Vislet we show the mortality rate for infants in different countries in the world. In the video, we add all countries in the world and show how to remove some of the pre-loaded regions.

Create Story – Add texts and links

A Vislet is partly made out of data connected to one or multiple regions, but also to a background about the subject – links and tasks. In this tutorial we describe how to add the tasks and links to be used in your Story.

Create new chapters, save and open Stories

eXplorer allows the author of a Story to add more chapters. This is useful when you, for instance, want to Storytell around different events all connected to the same subject. The video also shows how to save your Story to use later on.
