Overview: Everything happens some place — geography is specific to stories about the River!

Data Visualization and Story Mapping are common journalism and storytelling tools. For some reason, few people in Duluth and our region use them. We can help you change that! Learn the basics, and see how these tools enhance reporting and storytelling. Bring your laptop and make your own online, interactive story map.

This hands-on workshop will introduce you to the basics of Esri’s ArcGIS Online. Through a combination of demonstrations and hands-on activities, participants will learn the fundamentals of designing and sharing online maps, preparing data for use, online data sources, and map design. Coffee and donuts from Johnson’s Bakery in Lincoln Park provided.

All One River events are free and open to the public.

“One River, Many Stories” is a journalism, media and storytelling project and resource hub for journalists, educators, and citizens to foster deeper conversations about our community. This UMD Department of Journalism project is funded in part by the Knight Foundation Fund of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation.
