I am hoping to use the storymap template to show many geotagged images (definatly over 100). These images are also quiet big (megs). I intend to store the images on a web server along with some generated thumb images. I would also like to modify the template to allow inclusion of a JavaScript "zoomer" tool (allowing magnification of the image). I am not really sure if the story map template is the right way to go but the UI is nice and simple, so I think its worth a try.

I would like to use an IDE to modify the JavaScript and note that the Story Map template seem to have been developed using Aptana. My question is, how do I do this? I am a bit confused that there are two zips on GitHub site, one for users and one for developers. I can load the developer story map into Aptana but cannot run it and I can run the user story map but cannot load it into Aptana.

Sorry if the question is a bit simple but I am new to web development in HTML5.

Many thanks
