In 2012 The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling released an updated version of Stories Matter, 1.6g. With the progress we’ve made over the last two years in developing an increasingly stable and functional oral history database software, in 2013 COHDS will proceed into the third phase of development for Stories Matter, the Memory Mapper plugin. This phase will see the development of a downloadable plugin for Stories Matter which will allow users to map the spatial relationships that emerge within and among the life stories they annotate and archive.
This free plugin will give Stories Matter users the tools needed to geo-locate interview collections within their Stories Matter databases, and support the creation of maps containing embedded audio and video clips from interview collections. Users will be able to export this information in order to develop interactive mapping applications accessible via personal computers and mobile technologies such as smartphones and tablets, creating new possibilities for developing mp3 audio tours as well as dynamic and interactive audio tour applications.
