SOWS map

Here at Sightline, we’re enamored of good visuals–especially maps that tell stories. So I was pleased to find a terrific interactive map published by Save Our Wild Salmon. Scrolling across features in the Columbia-Snake River basin, users learn the story of salmon conservation.

I’m not just talking about pop-up windows that describe the dams and wilderness areas (it has those too). I’m talking about clickable icons that activate movie clips. You hear real people tell their stories of life in a faltering salmon economy, and you see compelling images of the places where people and salmon meet. It’s nice work.
