  • Description: For a class this summer I created a Story Map designed to inform the reader about biomimicry and where they could find biomimetic technology implementations and institutions that teach and research biomimicry around the world.

    The StoryMap explains what biomimicry is and why it is important. I created two datasets for this project by researching biomimicry online. The first, “Biomimetic Implementations”, details the locations and attributes of biomimetic implementations around the world. The second dataset, “Biomimetic Institutions”, details locations where biomimicry is being researched or taught, whether in the context of non-profit education, academia, or consulting business. These datasets are embedded into the StoryMap and they are also available through the ArcGIS Online portal for viewing and sharing.

    I had a lot of fun completing this project for the class! Researching the institutions and implementations that I wanted to include on the maps was illuminating and I learned so much about the span of biomimicry research across the world. I hope that my Web App maps and StoryMap will be helpful for students learning about biomimicry and also helping to educate those interested in pursuing this field about where they could work. It has also inspired me to include some of the locations that I researched into my future travel plans - I would love to see many of these bio-inspired buildings in person someday!
