ABSTRACT: Whatever your field, Story Maps can be a powerful way to connect with your audience. A Story Map is a multimedia format that allows for the integration of interactive webmaps, images, weblinks, and video into a single visual presentation. The use of Esri Story Maps is expanding across sectors and disciplines. People have been creating these maps for a wide range of purposes, including: analysis, introducing your employees to colleagues, the public or your customers, outreach and advocacy, highlighting environmental issues, explaining the results of research, and generally sharing maps and the results of geospatial projects. In this panel we will explore the range of applications for Story Maps in different disciplines. Our panel members, hailing from state government, traditional academia, and an outreach organization, have all used Story Maps or helped others to do so. In addition to highlighting how these maps are used by different constituencies, we will also consider how different Story Map formats might best suit specific needs. We will share some of our best practices, as well as, highlight some common pitfalls. We also hope to bring different views into the conversation by learning about the Story Map work of audience members.
