We're going to dive deeper into Story Maps at the next monthly GHE Esri Seminar on Thursday June 7. Our special guest will be Allen Carroll, the Program Manager for Storytelling at Esri.
Mr. Carroll leads Esri's Story Maps team, which develops open-source web apps that enable hundreds of thousands of individuals and organizations to tell place-based stories combining interactive maps and multimedia content. The team also develops its own story maps, prototyping innovative user experiences and demonstrating best practices for map-enabled storytelling. The team's website is at storymaps.arcgis.com
He came to Esri after 27 years at the National Geographic Society. As chief cartographer at NGS, he was deeply involved in the creation of the Society's renowned reference and wall maps, globes, and atlases. He led the creation of the Seventh and Eighth editions of the World Atlas, incorporating satellite imagery and innovative thematic maps into the editions and integrating them for the first time with interactive Web resources. He spearheaded the publication of many new maps and Web resources, ranging from decorative wall maps and supplement maps for National Geographic magazine to special projects featuring biodiversity, conservation, and indigenous cultures. He is a former member of the National Geospatial Advisory Committee.
