Subject: [ddj] Maps/dataviz built into scrollable story-telling - examples?

Hello everybody,

I have a project where I would like to build data visualizations, especially maps, into a scrollable story-telling onepager like this:

I would be most thankful for any examples of similar things that have been done before.

It seems to me that especially maps inside such a scrolling environment are not very common. I wonder why and if I simply have overlooked many examples. I am not thinking of embedded maps that are fancy animated simulated camera flights or such. Rather simple things, that are presented big, i.e. as a whole page (or significant part of it) within the story: Interactive maps with location dots and info-window popups or interactive choropleth maps (be it self-made with D3, Raphael, or using other services like google, OSM, CartoDB, Mapbox...).

Thank you very much for you help!
