StoryMap ArcGIS

ArcGIS

StoryMap by ArcGIS is… what it says it is… A way to tell a story through a map, the beauty of this is that they have multiple platforms to tell stories. There are 11 total ways to create different stories, but we will be looking at 6 today and what makes them useful. The maps are located under the apps tab on the website.

The Different Maps

  • Map Tour
  • Map Journal
  • Map Series
    • The Story Map Series app lets you present a series of maps via tabs, numbered bullets, or our expandable ‘side accordion’ control. In addition to maps, you can also include images, video and web content in your series to tell your story and engage your audience. For example the first tab in a tabbed series can be a compelling photo that sets the scene.
    • It’s easy to create a Story Map Series showing different data for the same location, such as a set of thematic maps about a particular city. By default your maps are synchronized to show the same geographic location, so if a user zooms in or pans one of the maps, that navigation is reflected automatically when they switch to a different map. Alternatively you can have each map show a different area, such as a set of land use maps for a number of different cities, by turning synchronization off.
    • 3 Kinds

  • Swipe
    • The Story Map Swipe and Spyglass app enables users to interact with two web maps or two layers of a single web map, depending on how you build your story. The app enables you to present a single view, or to develop a narrative showing a series of locations or views of the same maps.
    • This app can be an effective way to show before-and-after imagery, such as the aftermath of a storm or flood.
    • A builder function in the app enables you to choose between the swipe or spyglass options. Although swipe provides a more efficient way for users to compare maps, the spyglass function is fun and engaging.

Homework

  • Use one of the six methods above to create a map on anything.
  • Your map must have at least 5 components to it, E.G. 5 tabs, slides, Journal entries etc…
  • Must have complete information in each component if it requires that matches your theme
  • Find an example of each of the other maps you didn’t use (from the galleries linked above) and do a short 2-3 sentence write up on why the information they have displayed works well with the type of map they chose. (For the Series Maps just one)
    • Find unique ones!
