Note: This blog covers the classic Esri Story Maps. Story authors are encouraged to use the new ArcGIS StoryMaps to create stories; however, Esri will continue to maintain the classic templates for your use. For more information, see the Product road map.
The Story Maps Developers’ Corner is a great place for developers of all experience levels to learn how to customize Esri’s open-source Story Map apps. The Story Maps team has shared many tips and tricks on the Dev Corner since we announced it back in Nov 2015, and we’ve also had contributions from several guest authors.
Here’s what we’ve been blogging about on the Dev Corner since our last update on the ArcGIS blog:
