Story Maps

Developed on Esri’s ArcGIS Online platform, story maps are stand-alone web-based resources that – as the title suggests – lead a viewer through a narrative through an interface that can combine maps, text, videos, photos, and other media with templates, map interfaces, and navigation devices designed by Esri. Though the story itself may be linear, GIS-based map layers add multiple dimensions, allowing users to interactively find information for the locations they’re most interested in.
