Would you like to be in sunny San Diego this June?
Esri Story Maps let you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. They make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story.
The Esri Story Map application templates come in a variety of flavors. Choose an app with a user experience appropriate for your story. The Story Map Tour, for instance, is great for photos with short captions, but if you have longer text, the Story Map Journal might be better. If you want your audience to be able to switch between different maps, the Story Map Series makes the most sense.
Story maps use geography as a means of organizing and presenting information. They tell the story of a place, event, issue, trend, or pattern in a geographic context. They combine interactive maps with other rich content—text, photos, video, and audio—within user experiences that are basic and intuitive.
The grand prize winner will receive airfare, accommodations, and registration to the 2016 Esri User Conference. (Who wouldn’t want to be in San Diego in June?)
Oh, and BTW, the first 500 people to submit a story map will receive an extremely stylish T-shirt just for entering the contest.
