Hey all! I am going through some ArcGIS tutorials and trying to build a gis map of environmentally hazardous material sites. I'm in the middle of that. Doing it to learn GIS and ArcGIS and to grow in the industry.

I want to learn to do Story Maps to add to this project. Keep in mind I cannot pay for courses, still unemployed and looking, but am super interested in learning about them. I want to create one to grow in also to start to make them in helping me learn. I am a visual learner and anthropologist and I love gathering data and making stories and ideas out of them. I feel this program is an awesome way to do that.

The question I have is does anyone recommend a good set of free tutorials to start to learn to do Story Maps?

I am excited to learn to do this.

Jason

Jason,

Does this site allow you to go through the tutorial?
https://learn.arcgis.com/en/projects/share-the-story-of-an-expedition/

Also, take a look at this stie:
https://www.esri.com/training/catalog/5d49a2cb04e5cb3ac549b8a7/getting-started-with-arcgis-storymaps...

For learning ArcGIS Pro, the best MOOC is coming up on Cartography. I would highly suggest signing up for that course that starts mid-February. It's free:

Thank you! I appreciate it!

Who made that learning plan? I made one similar but not sure I did it right.

I also found this by accident after this post. Have you used this?
