ONLINE ONLY: Using ArcGIS StoryMaps in Your Research and Teaching

March 31, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Want to make a map that will help you share the stories being uncovered through your research and make them accessible to a broader audience? Want to give your students an opportunity to engage with spatial thinking and work on an exciting digital project? ArcGIS StoryMaps allows you to weave an inspiring and interactive narrative by combining text, maps, and multimedia content – photos, videos, and audio – to communicate information through engaging and user-friendly web mapping applications.

In this workshop, we will explore the ArcGIS StoryMaps platform with a focus on the timely topic of the U.S. Census. Participants will: 

  • Explore StoryMaps albums to learn from examples spanning a wide range of topics
  • Build a StoryMap to illustrate a possible use case in research and teaching
  • Sketch a workflow for creating a StoryMap or assignment related to their own research or teaching interests
  • Locate and access training resources to support continued learning for creating an ArcGIS StoryMap

This workshop is offered through a collaboration between the Center for Urban and Regional Analysis and the University Libraries.

Who: Ohio State faculty, staff, postdocs, and graduate students from all disciplines
When: Tuesday, March 31, 3:00 – 4:30 p.m.
Where: Online Only
