In this workshop, participants will learn to effectively use Esri Story Maps (https://storymaps.arcgis.com/en/), a program that facilitates the combination of detailed maps with text, images, and multimedia in the interest of telling precise and engaging stories. Story maps can be made for a wide variety of subjects and are ideal for both historic narratives and developing stories.
Workshop participants will have an opportunity to work hands-on with Story Maps, and CDSC staff will guide a discussion for working with Story Maps as a tool for presenting digital scholarship. Participants are encouraged to bring possible project ideas to share with the group, and can bring media or content to work with as desired. Workstations containing with the most recent Esri ArcGIS software, as well as Geospatial Data Sources (https://libguides.libraries.wsu.edu/c.php?g=294141&p=1959559), are available in the Dimensions Lab (http://libraries.wsu.edu/services/dimensions-lab) on the first floor of Holland Library.
