#MyZeitgeist: how to use Meograph


Meograph is a media-making tool that you can use online for free in your web browser. It allows you to create unique mixes of media content, including photos and videos you find on the web as well as your own media assets. It has tools for annotating media with map data, narration, text and links. It uses a sequence-style editing format that allows you to create a flow of moments from the media elements you choose to bring together.
