The ArcGIS StoryMaps platform allows users to combine many different types of content - text, photos, videos, maps, and more - to create a compelling story. For a typical story map project, you’ll spend the vast majority of your time planning your story and creating or identifying relevant content, rather than on building the story map itself. Think of this as analogous to the way your time might be distributed when planning and conducting a project and then preparing a manuscript for publication.
For this exercise, we’ve done the content preparation for you, and you’ll have the chance to focus on some hands-on experience with the platform. We’ve chosen the timely theme of the U.S. Census, and all of the content you'll be adding in Task 3 is provided in the document linked below.
For your reference, a completed version of the story map that you are creating in this exercise is available here.
When you have finished adding everything from the Task 3 Content document, take a minute to review the Quick Tips provided below before moving on to Task 4.
