Esri Story Maps Win International Map Industry Association Conference Awards

IMIA held the conference September 9–11, 2012, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with attendees involved in all aspects of the mapping industry. A select group of industry leaders attending the conference judged the competition.

“Storytelling is rapidly becoming one of the most important reasons that organizations use web maps,” said Allen Carroll, program manager for ArcGIS Online content and team lead for Esri Story Maps. “The result is that GIS is emerging from the back office and becoming accessible—and useful—to everyone. The need for GIS to analyze, plan, manage, and support decisions remains vital, but organizations now perceive the need to tell the story of their analyses, plans, and decisions.”

Esri Story Maps combines narration and rich media content in interactive maps to help people discover and understand patterns and relationships that exist in the world. Esri began producing the story maps to support storytelling techniques, tools, and best practices. These story maps have spurred the development of templates and other resources, and now GIS professionals, web developers, graphics specialists, and others, build and publish their own story maps.

One example is US Agency for International Development (USAID), which recently released development data—including guarantees, loans disbursed, and available financing—in a story map. By displaying information in this manner, complex data can be viewed together, providing better insight for the private sector to explore new areas for collaboration with host countries, researchers, development organizations, and the public.
