Being a VideoMapper

A VideoMapper is a YouTuber who makes animated maps about real-life human historical events. Continue reading the page to see what things are VideoMapper material and things that are not.

1. Animated or slideshow

The map animation needs to be either a smooth, constant animation or a slideshow. By slideshow, the video must show the map for the majority of the video and changes in the map. Text doesn't matter, but if it is not attached to the slide of the map and takes up more than half the video, it's not a real map animation. Having too much dialogue-slides without changing maps makes it more like an online story with pictures. Documentaries show maps occasionally, but it doesn't make it an animation.

2. No Alternate History or "Future of" videos

Alternate history can be amusing, insightful, exciting, or haunting depending on the subject. What if Hitler captured Moscow? What if Abraham Lincoln was never shot? What if on the way to a battle, Napoleon slipped and fell off a cliff? However these aren't real historical events and won't count as a videomap. Videos about the future, even if they are a smooth animation, cannot count as a VideoMap either. 

3. They have to be the main focus

If a channel has one map animation and 50 minecraft videos, it won't be featured on this website as a videomapper. Keep in mind, they don't have to necessarily be a majority of your videos, but they certainly have to be the main focus. Channels that do not have videomaps as the main focus but still a large portion of their videos will be considered semi-videomappers and will be featured on the major videomappers page but will not be included on the charts.

Example of a VideoMap


The requirement to be featured on the site is you need to have at least 1,000 subscribers. However the charts only show the top 20 in general.
