Esri Story Maps Workshop
Half-day workshop, 1:00-5:00 PM

Presenter: Rupert Essinger is a member of the Esri Story Maps team.

Description: 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!

Audience: Anyone interested in location-based storytelling. There are no prerequisites for this course. You may have a story map idea already in mind. Or you may just want to find out more about what these tools may offer your organization.  Optionally, attendees can bring a laptop and we'll get you up and running making story maps. ArcGIS Online knowledge a plus but not required. No web development skills required.

No registration fee required. Participation is limited.
