Happy Tuesday!

We are often asked questions via email from educators and those serving educators. Recently a question came in about getting started with the new StoryMaps.

Here’s a great step-by-step post on how to start a new StoryMap,

  1. You will need to find out what ArcGIS Online Organization account you will log in to.Think about where you want your StoryMap to live and which organization you will be able to use.

  2. Once you identify which ArcGIS Online Organization account will house your StoryMap, put together some test text, and a few images in *.png or *.jpg format to use as you progress through the steps provided.This will keep you from getting bogged down in the data while you are getting a feel for the StoryMap tool.When you get to the point where they want you to add a map, you can choose a map you have already created, or you can search for a map that has been created in Esri's Living Atlas of the World.
