Telling your Geoscience Story with Story Maps
1pm Eastern/Noon Central/11am Mountain/10am Pacific Time Thu 14 Mar 2019
Communicating results of geoscience investigations to a diverse set of audiences will grow in importance in our 21st Century World. Communicating science is and will remain important to the entire community. GIS will continue to expand as an important tool for spatial analysis and visualization. Story maps are web mapping applications that provide geoscientists with the ability to combine 2D and 3D maps, audio, video, photographs, and narrative that can be shared with research colleagues, or the general public, and embedded in web pages and online presentation tools. This webinar will quickly give you the knowledge, skills, and confidence to make your own maps for telling your own story.
Speaker: Joseph Kerski, PhD, GISP, Education Manager, Esri

Esri Global Content Challenge! http://go.esri.com/content-challenge
Esri is challenging students all over the world to unleash the power of Esri content by way of their own geographic analyses, visualizations, predictive models and more to tell a compelling scientific story. The story must be presented using the Esri map journal app. We'll point you to the best of our data and our map journal tips and tricks. You do the rest! Judges will select the best map journals to be awarded prizes. Esri will also share the winning map journals on our Collaborative Resource Portal and feature them at Esri’s Federal GIS and Education User Conferences, and Young Professionals Network events.
Esri's Global Content Challenge is open to undergraduate or graduate students at colleges or universities, as well as high school students enrolled in an Advanced Placement Human Geography course. Get creative by using Esri's land, ocean, and population premium content libraries to tell compelling stories that bring about understanding and action.
There will be winners in each of three categories (land, ocean, and population) who will receive:
First Place: $10,000 or software equivalent
Second Place: $5,000 or software equivalent
Third Place: $2,000 or software equivalent
August 29, 2016 Competition opens
November 11, 2016 Competition closes at 5:00 PM (PDT)

Videos, Demonstrations, and More to Sharpen Your GIS Skills
"We noticed that you were not among the more than 11,000 customers who registered for the Sharpen Your GIS Skills seminar last fall. Those who attended liked what they learned so much that they asked us to share the content so they can re-create what they saw during the seminar.
We want to offer you the same opportunity and hope you take advantage of this content to stay current with your ArcGIS skills.
New Resources Added
A complete set of all the resources we shared with you at the seminar is now available on the seminar website. Notably, we just added links to
Know Someone Who Could Benefit from This Content?
If you think others would benefit from watching this seminar or a particular example shown, please feel free to share."
