What are the stories behind the data we see in maps? To reveal the narrative content implicit in map objects (e.g., lines), this research explores the placement of located comic strip art as lifelines in a 3D Space-Time Cube (with x, y and time axes). This hybrid of the cartographic and artistic is part of a growing effort to synthesise typically science-driven maps with human narrative and emotionally-charged content. The plotted space-time line is an ideal structure on which to attach illustrated narratives, while comic conventions neatly package narrative geography for visual deployment. The technique is exemplified with a typical work day comic strip (the cover map) and a photo strip of a week-long road trip vacation depicted in a virtual environment. Both demonstrate that the approach succeeds as a way of representing the geometry of a story without compromising emotional content. View this paper.
