Our featured storytellers: Cedric Vidonne and Clarissa Dudenhoeffer


Cedric Vidonne is an Information Management Officer for UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. He uses his cartographer and designer background to create all sorts of visual products, such as maps and infographics but also compelling storytelling pieces. Currently, in Switzerland, Cedric had the opportunity to support UNHCR work for the refugees in various contexts around the world, including Africa and more recently South America. In 2018, Cedric and his colleagues from the UNHCR Mapping Unit won the Esri Storytelling with Maps Contest for their work on the Rohingya Refugee Emergency in Bangladesh.


Clarissa Dudenhoeffer is an Information Management Officer with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) working on the analysis of humanitarian data and the use of different types and sources of data to investigate and illustrate the needs of displaced populations. Interested in communication and data visualization, she has been working with her team of “data superheroes” – as she calls them – to step up UNHCR’s storytelling. In August 2020 the team rolled out a story map series on the interplay between COVID-19 and displacement – and they have plenty more stories in the pipeline.









About the authors

Ross Donihue is a cartographer and product engineer on Esri's StoryMaps team. He uses place-based storytelling to engage users through beautiful, informative, and inspiring cartography. When he's not making maps he's likely carving a spoon, making photos, or dreaming of mountains and fermentation.


Liz Todd (she/hers) is a multimedia specialist and product engineer on Esri's ArcGIS StoryMaps team. She specializes in place-based storytelling and participatory GIS, with a focus on leveraging GIS for equity and social justice. Liz also co-leads Prism, an employee community focused on increasing representation, inclusion, and belonging for LGBTQIA+ individuals in GIS. When not at work she usually can be found climbing, reading a good book, or off in search of rocks/fossils to add to her far too large collection.
