ESRI's Story Map templates allow users to quickly produce and share their stories using dynamic data and interactive maps.  While including maps can be useful, some of the best story maps include more story than they do map and some contain no map at all.  Telling your story (with or without a map) has never been easier. This workshop will guide users, step-by-step, through the tools and process of creating a great story map. 
1. Picking a template, understanding the components of the ESRI templates. 
2. Scripting a story, what makes a great story (map).
3. Organizing digital resources and content.
4. Producing and sharing a story, using the ESRI wizards and tools to create and present an engaging story. 
No story, no map, no problem...we will provide the story and the maps, we will even discuss less conventional ways to use the story map framework for things like promoting events, publishing websites or creating presentations.
