Abstract
In the current technological context new forms of mapmaking emerge. An increasingly common one produces story maps, maps that are shown with synchronized explanatory text, to visualize events in a spatial context. Story maps could be defined as the explicit display of such spatial and temporal landmarks on the grounds that a story is constructed. In this paper we present a story map oriented to pedagogical purposes. We have compiled an atlas displaying the expansion of the Black Death in Europe between 1346 and 1347, when the largest epidemic outbreak in the History of Europe ravaged the continent. To depict this event, we have used CartoDB, Odyssey and some other Web interactive tools to create eight interactive story maps gathered in an online atlas. The work was made in the frame of an end-of-degree Project (Geomatics Engineering, in Universidad Politécnica de Madrid). By now, it can be found in: http://clarar92.wix.com/atlasdelapestenegra
