Join geographer and ESRI Education Manager Joseph Kerski for a lively, hands-on session where you will combine multimedia (audio, video, narrative, photographs) with interactive web-based maps and tools to create story maps. These maps (https://storymaps.arcgis.com) can be used in teaching and research at any scale from local to global, and cover a multitude of themes and issues such as population change, economics, business locations, water quality, energy, natural hazards, current events, biodiversity loss, land use, and many more. These maps can be shared, accessed on any device, embedded in presentations or web pages, and combined with other multimedia. It will be highly preferable if participants have ArcGIS Institutional Online Accounts (contact your department IT) or a free Developer’s account (go to developers.arcgis.com and scroll all the way to the bottom). If not able to do either, a temporary workshop-only account will be created for you to be able to follow the exercises.
