Haller's journey by Melanie Imfeld
Haller’s Journey is an immersive story map inviting the reader to follow along the botanical journey of Albrecht von Haller, an 18th-century botanist, and physician. In 1739, Haller left his hometown Berne to travel to a region in Switzerland known as the Emmental. Focusing on the types of plants he discovered, Haller meticulously documented his journey in a travel diary. The diary was used to reconstruct the route he may have taken and to visualize it on a map. Story points accompanying the map contain a summary of each place Haller visited, including plants he discovered and the number of species he found at each location.
