DescriptionEsri’s story maps platform allows you to easily and powerfully embed and combine dynamic web maps with audio, video, photographs, sketches, and text in a compelling framework. Explore issues and topics ranging from glacial retreat, population change, global ecoregions from local to global scale. Teach with existing story maps in the online library, or have students create their own for their own projects, including local fieldwork. Use them as communication tools, assessment tools, and lesson activities.
