Geography professors Sébastien Caquard and William Cartwright have analysed the relationship between maps and narratives, and they agree that maps are an extraordinary tool to explain stories.

Volume 51, 2014 - Issue 2: Cartography and Narratives
“The potential of maps to both decipher and tell stories is virtually unlimited. Maps can contribute to leaving cartographic traces, making these experiences more visible and more tangible.”

If you are starting to create your own maps, some of the best tools you can use are CartoDB and Google Fusion Tables. You can also get simple and effective maps with Google Maps.
If you have some knowledge of JavaScript, you can also use Mapbox with hundreds of options to customise your maps.
