What are Story Maps?

Story Maps are a simple, yet powerful medium to inform, engage, and inspire people with any story you want to communicate that involves maps, geography, or location.

Story maps use geography as a means of organizing and presenting information. They convey the story of a place, event, issue, trend, or pattern in a geographic context. They also combine interactive maps with other rich content—text, photos, video, and audio—within user experiences that are basic and intuitive.
