Introduction to Story Maps (GIS103)

Learn to use Story Maps, an easy to use story telling tool which allows you to weave a compelling narrative and share it with your audience.

What: Over 4 x 2-hr sessions, you will use well-designed templates and easy to implement layouts to develop a Story Map based on your own research. You will explore various templates available with the program, learn to create a quick and simple online map, assemble your story and learn how to promote your Story Map once it is created. This will give you an effective and visually appealing way to communicate your research impact to governments, funding agencies, and the general public.

When: Online lab sessions will run from 10am-12pm on Tuesday 9 March, 16 March, 30 March, 6 April.

Participation in all of these sessions is required for this course.

Web-mapping in ArcGIS Online (GIS104)

Learn to use Story Maps, an easy to use story telling tool which allows you to weave a compelling narrative and share it with your audience.

What: Web mapping with ArcGIS Online (GIS104) is 2 x 3-hr hands on sessions which complement, but do not require, training in ArcGIS Story Maps. In these sessions you will be introduced to the fundamentals of web-mapping in ArcGIS Online and learn to generate well-designed web-maps that you can embed into your Story Maps, link to from a blog, and share through social media! You will explore how to make pop-ups and control interactivity with existing templates, learning to generate maps which effectively reveal patterns and tell your research story.

When: Online lab sessions will run from 1pm - 4pm on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 May 2021.

Participation in both of these sessions is required for this course.

Please register your enrolment through Eventbrite.
