Using ESRI Story Maps for stakeholder outreach and engagement is an emerging use for story mapping and one that offers flexibility and beautiful design. The ability to smoothly integrate spatial and non-spatial data, along with web content and embedded survey questions allows easy stakeholder education and feedback all in one platform. The possibilities with story maps are limited only by your imagination…and how far you want to push the ESRI template.

For this lightning talk, I will go through the process I used to build an Online Open House for King County’s Shoreline Master Plan update. The map acts as one tool, yet it’s actually five different story maps and one web app all combined to function as one. I will share some insights on combining and ‘stacking’ different story map formats and share both the successes and challenges with using story mapping as a platform from which to engage stakeholders.

The templates built into the ESRI platform have great, targeted uses, and combining the different templates really allows story mapping to shine, and I hope to share that with you through this talk.
