Tools to Share Your Story: GIS from a Cultural Viewpoint

This will be a hands-on class in basic Geographic Information Systems (GIS) concepts using Esri’s ArcGIS Online (AGOL). The National Geographic Society defines GIS as “a computer system for capturing, storing, checking and displaying data related to positions on Earth’s surface”. It is a tool to help us understand relationships and patterns in spatial data. With a suite of new apps, this online platform also offers opportunities for multimedia storytelling that we will explore.


Topics to be covered include:

  • How to access the AGOL platform

  • Searching for and downloading data

  • Creating data layers, manually and with other tools such as Survey123

  • Making maps using that data

  • Sharing data and maps, especially how to protect data from unauthorized access and a discussion about Indigenous data sovereignty

  • Hands-on work creating a StoryMap with data from Connecting Wildlands and Communities and/or Resilient Restoration

  • Additional resources for training and troubleshooting
