Story Maps have become important web based communication tools for Esri users. Unlike traditional cartographic or GIS analysis a Story Map enables a user to assemble a variety of content into an interactive package that provides context and supplemental information about a topic. Story Maps are gaining popularity as both a classroom exercise and way to create on-line content. This session will provide a technology overview from the head of the Story Map Team, an evaluation of the role of Story Maps by the director of Esri Education and an assessment of current user experiences. Members of the audience will be encouraged to provide feedback and comments on the future of Story Maps.
