Did you ever watch a documentary packed with information that went by too fast? Or too slowly? Canadian media company The Globe and Mail has posted an on-line story that has the visual benefits of a documentary, but with the ability to self-pace the experience like one can do with a book.
This particular online article is about a new Trans Mountain pipeline which would pump crude oil from Edmonton, Alberta to Vancouver, BC, increasing the existing capacity from 300,000 barrels a day to 890,000. It also involves building a new dock at the marine terminal, and dramatically increasing the numbers of oil tankers going to and from the Port of Vancouver.
Last year we featured a multi-media article by Tristan Baurick of the Kitsap Sun because of its impressive interactivity. This article in The Globe is also a very noteworthy landmark in the evolution of new interactive storytelling. I highly recommend taking a look.
