Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
Online GIS Skills for Hawaii (Using ArcGIS Online)
Online GIS combines the reach of the Web with the power of maps and storytelling to inform and inspire a larger audience than is possible through conventional desktop GIS. StoryMaps is an Esri product that lets you “combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. They make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story.” In this course, you will:
- Learn to use the new StoryMaps Builder
- Learn to use national and Hawaii-specific online data resources
- Learn to publish and use your own data online from ArcGIS Desktop (optional)
- Learn to use classic StoryMap templates like Swipe, Spyglass, and others.
Not sure what StoryMaps are, how you can use them, and why you would want to learn this skill? Here is a StoryMap example about volcanoes worldwide including Kilauea. After viewing this, you’ll want to take our training: http://go.hawaii.edu/qTj
