PART I  Yale StoryMaps Network Kick-Off

DATE: Thursday, October 03
LOCATION: Burke Auditorium, Kroon Hall

Story maps, which combine maps and multimedia content to enable web-based storytelling, are an increasingly popular tool for researchers. They’re being used to communicate complicated analyses, final projects, and even visual resumes. In this session, you will learn the ABCs of story maps, including what they are and how their builder functions make it possible to easily create rich multimedia narratives. You will also learn about ArcGIS StoryMaps, a new, next-generation storytelling tool that makes it even easier to create maps and weave them into stories.
