Complete newbie, not a GIS specialist (I'm project manager). Need help understanding ArcGIS capacity. Essentially, I'm looking to create a web interface made up of a "master bucket" (introductory story and images) with a navigation structure that allows connection to 53 other unique "buckets" (composed of narrative and two maps, one with multiple layers) to tell the complete story. The Sidecar layout works for all the buckets, I just don't know how to create the navigation between/among them. It may be that building unique sections is all it takes, I just need to know whether ArcGIS really has this capability, and if so, what the best tool, or combination of tools to use. We need to use out of the box templates, as no one on the team is a programmer. The attached file gives a rough idea of what we're trying to do.

Thanks,

Henry

Hi Henry,

It sounds like ArcGIS StoryMaps is what you are looking for? How to Make a Story Map Using Esri Story Maps might be a good place to get started. Feel free to check out the ArcGIS StoryMaps GeoNet community if you have more specific questions. 

Hope it helps,

Jonah

Thanks for reaching out. I’m familiar with the basics of StoryMap, but have been told by a couple of more advanced users that it’s really not intended for embedding multiple “sub-stories” the way we need to. I’m looking at Experience Builder, and it seems to offer a lot of what we need. And I really like the behavior of the SideCar template, I just don’t know how to combine these things. Do you know if it’s possible to create a navigation system within a sidecar that would link to other sidecars, or can you create multiple, yet independent “sections” within a sidecar app?
