Using ArcGIS Storymaps in Your Research and Teaching

Sep 14, 2020, 12:00am - 11:45pm

Want to make a map that will help you share the stories being uncovered through your research and make them accessible to a broader audience? Want to give your students an opportunity to engage with spatial thinking and work on an exciting digital project? ArcGIS StoryMaps allow you to weave an inspiring and interactive narrative by combining text, maps, and multimedia content – images, videos, and embeds – to communicate information through engaging and user-friendly web mapping applications. 

By completing this activity, participants will:

  • Explore StoryMaps albums to learn from examples spanning a wide range of topics
  • Build a StoryMap to illustrate a possible use case in research and teaching
  • Brainstorm possibilities for creating a StoryMap or assignment related to their own research or teaching interests
  • Locate and access additional resources to support continued learning for ArcGIS StoryMaps

This self-paced, 100% online workshop should take approximately 90 minutes to complete. Participants will receive an email prompt on September 14th with instructions for completing the activity, and there is no deadline for completion.

The workshop facilitators will also be hosting an optional “Ask Me Anything” session on Thursday, September 17th from 4-5pm where participants can ask questions about the activity or building a StoryMap related to their own work. Complete details for joining this session on Zoom will be included in the email prompt.

This workshop is offered through a collaboration between the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis and the University Libraries.
