Digital storytelling with maps

Go to purchase options

Harness the power of maps to tell engaging stories

Use ArcGIS StoryMaps to combine maps, 3D scenes, embedded content, multimedia, and more into an interactive narrative that can create awareness, influence opinion, and affect change. The easy-to-use builder helps you create digital stories and presentations called briefings that incorporate your dynamic geographic information system (GIS) work and external content. Stories and briefings can be organised into collections and customised with themes. 

Storytelling with maps has never been easier

Demonstrate the impact of location-specific connections with digital stories and slides that put your dynamic maps and data front and centre.

Simple mapmaking

Express maps, unique to ArcGIS StoryMaps, enable you to create custom maps that are artful and informative. Design your own interactive express map in minutes and add points, pop-ups, and arrows to enhance your stories and briefings. Your readers can interact with an express map without leaving your story or presentation.

You can also use your existing ArcGIS web maps and web scenes, create a new map using Esri demographic and lifestyle data, or choose from a curated collection of ready-to-use maps from the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World.

Digital storytelling on your terms

Use a flexible, easy-to-use builder to weave together maps, 3D scenes, embedded content, video, photos, text, audio, and more into a digital story or presentation. With advanced image editing, you can crop, resize, and adjust your images right from the builder. Tell your story and make an impact on your audience, wherever they are.
