AUTHORS: Emily Wilson, University of Connecticut 

ABSTRACT: The University of Connecticut’s Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) has a long history of making applied research results usable and accessible to audiences covering a wide range of technical ability.   CLEAR has successfully translated science-based complicated information into multi-media experiences with story maps.  The ability to organize and combine data, maps, information, text and graphics is powerful and effective.  The presentation will be a tour of several CLEAR story maps with a  focus on the way information is conveyed as well as techniques for doing so in a story map.
