Abstract: Scientists, journalists, and photographers have used advanced camera technology to capture extremely high resolution timelapses and developed information visualization tools for data exploration and analysis. However, it takes a great deal of effort for professionals to form and tell stories after exploring data, since these tools usually provide little aids in creating visual elements. We present a web-based timelapse editor to support the creation of guided video tours and interactive slideshows from a collection of large-scale spacial and temporal images. Professionals can embed these two visual elements into webpages in conjunction with various forms of digital media to tell multimodal and interactive stories.
