How the Guardian built multimedia interactive Firestorm

"Firestorm, the Guardian's multimedia interactive centred around this year's bushfires in Tasmania, was launched in tandem with Guardian Australia and has received widespread praise on the web for its moving and immersive portrayal of a crisis.

The interactive combines feature writer Jon Henley's text with video and audio footage, some shot by the Guardian team and some supplied by residents of Dunalley, the town at the heart of the story, as well as interviews with residents and maps of the area."

(Alastair Reid, 29 May 2013)
