It’s an adaptable storytelling tool that is ideal for highlighting then/now stories that explain slow changes over time (growth of a city skyline, regrowth of a forest, etc.) or before/after stories that show the impact of single dramatic events (natural disasters, protests, wars, etc.). By way of example, look at the change Sochi underwent between 2005 and 2013: JuxtaposeJS is free, easy to use, and open source. Almost anyone can use JuxtaposeJS, so long as you’ve got links to two similar pieces of media (hosted on your own server or on Flickr). You’ve probably seen similar photo slider tools elsewhere. It also offers some customization out of the box. JuxtaposeJS joins four other tools in Publishers’ Toolbox, which we hope makes the suite of tools even more useful for journalists looking for quick-to-deploy, easy-to-use storytelling tools.

The library allows you to load one or more datasets in JSON, KML, or GeoRSS onto both a map and a timeline simultaneously. By default, only items in the visible range of the timeline are displayed on the map. Version 2.0.1 Now Up! Version 2.0.1 is primarily a maintenance release, fixing a number of small bugs and cleaning up a few things that weren't quite right in v.2.0.
Anyone using v.2.0 should probably upgrade to v.2.0.1, as it is more stable and includes very few changes other than bug fixes and new unit tests. Upgrading to v.2.x: Timemap.js v.2.x includes several important changes from 1.x: it removes the dependency on Google Maps v2, and adds dependencies on jQuery and the Mapstraction library to allow support for multiple map providers, including Google v3, OpenLayers, and Bing Maps.
