This visual case study was built to study the effectiveness of scrollytelling in tandem with tile grid maps. Specifically, we built this interactive based on Google's Community Mobility data measuring people's movement before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. We designed a dynamic and interactive format to display auto-generated narratives synchronized with the context of the grid map. We believe the use of narratives in grid map context will be a useful storytelling format. This paper describes the design decisions that went into building this interactive format.
