About this episode

Maps make data understandable, powerful and memorable. Join this session to learn how to use our “Storytelling Template” to quickly build an interactive experience with high-quality map visuals. This storytelling format — sometimes called “scrollytelling” — lets you include as much context as you want, and define the locations your users look at. It’s a great way to bring stories to life.

You’ll learn how to...

  • Download the template and choose your style
  • Add the places you want to include in your story
  • Add photos and text content to enrich each chapter
  • Publish your project to share it with the world!
