If you or your colleagues are looking for a step-by-step guide to authoring story maps with some of the most popular Story Map app templates, then here's a useful resource. The "Get Started with Story Maps" section of the Learn ArcGIS site now features step-by-step lessons for creating:
- Story Map Tours
- Story Map Cascades
- Story Map Journals
The lessons are self-paced and completely free.
And the Story Map Journal lesson uses the same resources (narrative, images and map) that were used in the Cascade lesson to create a "Welcome to San Diego" Map Journal. So you can see how the same story can be sliced and diced differently in the two story templates.
