What are story maps?

Story maps combine one or more web maps with narrative text, great images, and multimedia content to tell stories about neighborhoods, communities, nations, and the world using the common visual language of geography.

Your story could showcase your organization's plans or projects, educate people about an issue, or fire up your non-profit's supporters. Or it could be a personal story, such as sharing a place you love. The possibilities are endless. What's your story?
