ArcGIS StoryMaps (workshop)

Learn more about using ArcGIS StoryMaps in your research and teaching at Ohio State

Use Your New Skills

So far in this workshop, you've had a chance to explore stories others have created for inspiration and to build an example story map to familiarize yourself with the platform. In this section, you'll have a chance to brainstorm ways to connect what you've learned to your own work.


Take 10-15 minutes to review the documents provided below related to planning a story map project or planning a class assignment. As you think about possible uses of ArcGIS StoryMaps in your research and teaching, these documents are meant to help you and your students with that work.


Resources to Continue Learning

If you would like to continue your learning, there are many great resources available from the ArcGIS StoryMaps team. Some of our favorites include:



There is also a great collection of materials from the University of Minnesota called Teach with StoryMaps that includes resources for both instructors and students.


As we mentioned earlier in this workshop, ArcGIS StoryMaps is one of a number of applications associated with ArcGIS Online. If you are interested in learning more about the other applications, including how to create your own web maps to integrate into your future story maps, check out this curated set of resources and tutorials that we're calling the ArcGIS Online Challenge.


Lastly, as an Ohio State affiliate, you have access to all of the resources in the Esri Training Catalog through the ArcGIS Online organizational account that you created earlier in this activity. You can sign in to access resources that indicate "Requires Maintenance" and to track your learning activity.
