Animaps - Create Animated Maps

Posted in Labels: ,

Animaps is a cool service that allows its users to create animated Google Maps. If you are already familiar with Google Maps then you would not find Animaps hard to understand. They both function in the same way with one exception that Animaps lets its users “create maps with markers that move, images and text that pop up on cue, and lines and shapes that change over time and when you send your Animap to friends it appears like a video - they can play, pause, slow and speed up the action!”

Applications of Animaps in education.

I think Animaps can be a very good alternative to storytelling tools. Students work in  small groups and try to come up with a scenario of events that they have to illustrate on their Animaps. This will enhance both their writing and creative skills.
