As I mentioned in part one of our series, I’m new to GIS, Esri technology, and everything geospatial. Researching haunted places? Piece of cake. Taking pictures of haunted places? So easy! Working with ArcGIS Online as a first-time user to put all of my research, images, and coordinates into a story map with a custom basemap? That was going to be a bit more of a challenge. Luckily for me, I work with some folks who know this stuff backwards, forwards, sideways, upside down, and underwater. And because they love it so much, they didn’t hesitate to give me a hand when there was something I was trying to figure out how to do. Not that it was too terribly complicated but I definitely wanted to make sure I was doing it all correctly. I went about my story map creation in the most non-technical way ever and, in hindsight, should have taken advantage of some of the available resources on the Esri website.
