ArcGIS StoryMaps is a story authoring web-based application that enables you to share your maps in the context of narrative text and other multimedia content. You can use ArcGIS StoryMaps to do the following:

  • Author stories with the story builder. Stories can include maps, narrative text, lists, images, videos, embedded items, and other media.
  • Publish and share your stories. Published stories each have their own URL, and you can use these URLs to share your stories within your organization, to specific groups, or with everyone.
  • Create and publish collections. Collections can include stories and ArcGIS web apps bundled together for easy sharing and presenting.
  • Manage your stories. View and edit your stories from the Stories page, find stories authored by others in your organization, and add stories to your favorites list.
