An Introduction to Esri Story Maps

On September 25, 2018, the Alberta Geomatics Group (AGG) held its 2018 Fall Learning Session & Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Calgary. Several members of the geomatics community were invited to speak at the AGM, including one of our Geomatics Technicians, Heather Campbell, who spoke about her experiences using Esri’s Story Map online platform. Story Maps are web applications which combine interactive text, media and maps to tell stories about the world.

Heather gave an overview of what Story Maps are, how they’re created, what they can be used for, and some tips and tricks she has learnt along the way; all in relation to a Story Map she created for our recently-completed ParcelMap BC project.
