Story maps use geography as a means of organizing and presenting information. Story maps often present photos, video, and text to communicate through web-map based storytelling to describe and help visualize an event, or place. Story maps communicate and share a favorite trails, destinations, or recreation sites. Ultimately, they tell the story of a place, event, issue, trend, or pattern in a geographic context.
Story maps are lightweight web apps. They combine web maps created using ArcGIS Online, ESRI's mapping system, with multimedia content—text, photos, video, and audio—to let you know about the rich diversity of Oregon/Washington BLM's programs and places. Some of these remarkable areas include: the Huntington Wagon Road, BLM's wilderness areas in Oregon and Washington, and recreation opportunities on the North Umpqua River!
