These online storytelling tools are designed to put a map in its given context and provide viewers with all the supporting information they need. This makes StoryMaps incredible stand-alone resources! Viewers are presented with interactive maps alongside legends, images, and text all in a linear web page for you to scroll and unlock the story.

We created our own StoryMaps that explore topics related to bird migration, such as:

  • Why do birds migrate?
  • Where do birds migrate?
  • How has migration changed over time because of human impacts?
  • What challenges do humans need to help birds overcome on their migrations?
