-Monday, 9:00am-4:00pm (EST)
-Optional check-in session Friday, January 11, 10:00am-12:00pm
Tell the story of your data with a Story Map — a user friendly web application where you can combine your data and maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. Whether you’re a student, instructor, or aspiring researcher, you can use these Story Maps to investigate pertinent issues in public health, disease surveillance, chronic illness, political geography, public safety, or other areas of interest.
The workshop will enable participants to understand how a story can be effectively told with today’s interactive, web-based Story Maps, learn how to showcase your data using the Story Map format, and learn how to create Story Maps that incorporate sounds, video, photographs, narrative, and other multimedia. Through discussion and the use of several examples participants will learn how and why to create Story Maps using the ArcGIS Online platform and be confident that you can use them for your data when you are ready.
