What is Geography and Geographical Storytelling?

Do you love geography, but want to know why it is important? Also do you like telling stories? Elevate your story by putting it into its place. Maps have an unrivaled power to visually communicate geographical information. The addition of geographical context deepens the clarity and resonance of your narrative. This workshop will introduce users to the ArcGIS StoryMaps platform, where we'll explore how to integrate multiple media types -- including image, video, audio, and custom 2D and 3D maps -- into compelling, engaging, and substantive digital media output.
