Story Maps: Harnessing the Power of Maps to Tell Your Story

Of the many exciting features and updates associated with Cadasta’s new partnership with Esri, Story Maps stands out.

Story Maps is an Esri-supported application that lets you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content to create compelling, user-friendly web apps. The program makes it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story and can be used for a variety of purposes, from advocacy and outreach, to training materials and annual reports.

With the Esri integration under way, all Cadasta users will be able to access and leverage Story Maps to share their maps and tell their story. For Cadasta partners, Story Maps is an excellent tool for conveying your message to advocate for greater recognition of land and resource rights.

There are several Story Map application templates you can choose from depending on the type of story you wish to tell. If you are unsure of how you can use Story Maps in your work and projects, check out this blog for an overview of the various ways Story Maps have been utilized. For inspiration, you can also find several examples in the Story Maps Gallery which allows you to filter by subject and industry, or search by keyword to find Story Maps that match your storytelling needs.

The Cadasta Communications and Marketing Team is looking forward to using Story Maps to tell the story of our partners and projects.
