Story Map Platforms

Started over 1 year ago

Hello Wildhub community!  I was interested as to whether anyone had any suggestions for  free, online platforms for the creation of story maps?  I am asking my graduate students to create story maps for their Urban Ecology course, but I am always interested in new resources to share with them.  We often see them using Knight Lab, Google tour builder, Arc GIS, but if there are any others you would recommend, please let me know. 

Thank you! 

Hi Molly

I only have experience with the ESRI story maps. Microsoft Sway might be an option for folks that have an office license but not an ESRI one. Google Tours and storymaps JS seem like the most popular free options.

Hi, Molly. Somebody mentioned that yWorks is useful for drawing mind maps: I hope this helps!
