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

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
