I have built a number of basic story maps to do with Family Trees and history.
I am now hoping to expand my knowledge and develop something more extensive.
Currently I have a Joomla website to record my Travelogue. Home (ivanhurst.me.uk)
It has a database section which has records of places visited and border crossings together with Lat Long and dates. This is constructed using Fabrik, an extension build for Joomla 3 which is at end of life.
The database is boring and has no life, it is just part of the background for the main articles. My Border crossings (ivanhurst.me.uk)
I think it could be brought to life in an ArcGIS Story Map.
Firstly if I download the data into Excel and then to CSV tables. The Tables could then be imported into Story Map, a world view. Separate trips could then be chosen or selected which could then open a journey map for that trip. An alternative which I am exploring is to download the MariaDB 10 sql database and host that on a QNAP NAS, create a new front end and use that to create the CSV files to feed Story Map. I assume that the free version cannot interface with a sql database.

Any hits as to how to start this, or if it is too much. I would like it to be all table based data which is updatable. Are there any examples of similar that you know of. I have not found any yet.
It is only for personal use. I only have access to free versions.
