Storytelling with maps
Maps have always played an important role for journalists and editors to illustrate and clarify the written word.
With advancements in mapping technology, the role of maps in the media has become even more important.
Editors and journalists are increasingly turning to the storytelling power of maps to bring together words, images, videos and data – via one accessible platform.
As a result, Esri’s story maps have become important tools in facilitating immediate access to comprehensive, understandable and up-to-date information.
By signing up for a free public ArcGIS Online account, journalists can start creating their own meaningful media maps and publish them on the web.
A public account offers access to a range of templates, allowing media to choose a map which suits their story.
Free tutorials are also available through ArcGIS Online, meaning it’s easy to make an immediate start.
