Instructor Led Workshop
Instructor: Jeremiah Lindemann
In this workshop you'll learn how to create story maps with the ArcGIS platform. Story Maps are interactive web applications that let you combine interactive maps, narrative text, images, videos, 3D web scenes and other media to engage and inspire your audience. In this workshop we'll show you how to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story: whether you want to tell the general public about a planning project; engage supporters and the media about a conservation issue; present the results of your GIS analysis work to stakeholders inside your organization; or simply create a personal story about a trip or place you love. We'll show you the different story map application templates you can choose from and walk you step-by-step through the process of building, refining, and publishing a story map. Learn the basics plus get tips and tricks to turn your story map into a polished communication product. We'll also show you best practices for promoting your story map to your audience. But most of all we hope to inspire you to tell your story!
