For this project, you will create a storymap about the Fall 2016 Appalachian Wildfires using Mapbox, Leaflet and Parallax scrolling techniques.
Your storymap will be a parallax scrolling single-page website. There is no specific length requirement, but your site should be an appropriate scale for the story you are telling.
How to approach the subject of the 2016 Appalachian wildfires is up to you. There are many angles you can take - from more broad and general, to more specific and focussed on an individual fire or mini-narrative. Look at the 5 Principles of Effective Storytelling for advice and Sample Story Maps for inspiration.
Submit your storyboards and interim Mapbox maps on Google Drive in the 'Wildfire Storyboards/Drafts' folder by the deadline (see the Course Schedule) for grading and in-class critique.
Submit your final project on Google Drive in the 'Wildfire Final Projects' folder. Include a 300-word paragraph describing the concept and approach of your project.
