Earlier this summer we launched ArcGIS StoryMaps. Now, we’re revamping how we support the story map author community too. Come join us for a new webinar series to learn all about StoryMaps.
In September 2019, we kicked off a free webinar series that anyone can join and learn how to get started with ArcGIS StoryMaps. Our inaugural broadcast was a success, and over 300 attendees registered to learn about the latest updates to the product and hear from featured story map authors.
Keep an eye out for quarterly broadcasts. Find updates with links to register at the StoryMaps Live homepage. Follow us @ArcGISStoryMaps.
We want to make the webinar worth your while. Check out what happened at our inaugural September 2019 broadcast to see what to expect:
- We had a conversation with our first StoryMaps Live featured storyteller Gabby Salazar, conservation photographer and National Geographic Explorer.
- We demonstrated advanced tips and tricks on how to use the story builder, and a offered a sneak peek into enhancements coming in the next release.
- We heard from the audience in a Q&A.
- For new authors, we gave a brief review of what’s a story map.

Why we’re doing a webinar series
We want to make sure we continue to provide the support you need, while making that support even better.
With a brand new, modern product we want to provide a fresh way to engage the story maps community more frequently—and more broadly.
We believe storytelling is more than just a technology—it’s about a whole community of professionals working to collectively change the world. Fostering this community makes the stories—and their impact—even greater.
We on the StoryMaps team are a fortunate bunch. Every day we get to work with inspired GIS professionals, educators, and storytellers from across the mapping and digital communications spectrum; authors like you who are making a real difference.
We’re a small team and we’re honored to support such a variety of important missions. We’ll continue to do so through personal emails, phone calls, in-person seminars, and hands-on workshops. But we hope that StoryMaps Live webinars will be a game changer to expand how we support your work.
