On October 18th and 19th 2017, GSS hosted the two-day “Tribal Story Map Workshop” at the Saint Mary's University Alverna Center. The workshop was funded by a US EPA grant and conducted as a collaborative effort between GSS and the Stockbridge-Munsee Community Environmental Department.
The goal of the workshop was to provide members of tribal government organizations with technical training in how to develop Esri Story Maps using ArcGIS online tools. Story Maps are web-based applications that integrate multimedia, narratives, and web maps to effectively convey a story. Incorporation of these Story Map applications in their work will provide members of tribal organizations with an effective tool for not only sharing information internally but also to the general public for education and outreach. The workshop was well received by the 18 workshop participants as well as US EPA representatives in attendance.
