There's a new tool available to GIS professionals, planners, etc: Esri Story Maps. These cloud-based web apps enable you to combine maps and spatial data with narrative text, photos, videos and other multi-media to produce beautiful interactive narratives and presentations. Organizations can use them to inform citizens and stakeholders, showcase projects, present the results of GIS work, promote initiatives, etc. Story Maps are built into ArcGIS Online and ArcGIS Enterprise. So if you have an ArcGIS account, you can log in and start making Story Maps now. Best of all, no coding is required. You author story maps using easy-to-use builders. Over a quarter of a million story maps have already been created by the user community. Attendees will see how story maps are being used, get ideas and tips for how to use them, and learn how to author them.
