Modern Trends in GIS for Planners - Publishing Story Maps: How to Tell the Story of Your Community
Maps have always been a way to tell a story about data. In this hands-on workshop, we’ll show how to take that story to the next level. With no programming and no GIS knowledge, we’ll show how ready-made templates can be used to tell a story about the assets of your community on the web, so that your map conveys the story that you want.
