The National Maritime Museum of Amsterdam needed a product to gather stories of people who experienced being on the MS Oranje. This ship took people from Indonesia to the Netherlands right after the second World War.
VerhalenvangerVisit the project
The interactive map is used to visualise the routes the ship took to Indonesia and show stories of the year it visualises.
The form used in the Verhalenvanger (Storycatcher) is designed with Natural Language in mind. This means that filling in the form should feel as natural as people because the target audience might be 80 years or older.
Because everyone can share a story, we had to give The National Maritime Museum of Amsterdam the possibility to remove stories. That’s why we built an admin panel with:
- Report function
- Remove function
- Change function (to fix typos)
This is where the magic happens.
