Story Maps are a fun and easy way to combine online web maps with multimedia content such as text, photos, video, and audio. There are no developer or GIS/ mapping skills required to create these maps. Cambridge City Department Staff have created dozens of story maps to highlight community events, innovative projects, historic landmarks, and more.
Katie Grillo, a GIS Technical Specialist with Cambridge’s IT department, is a key person to contact if you are interested in how Story Maps have been implemented into the city of Cambridge.
The Cambridge, MA Story Map Gallery is used to organize and promote some of the most recent and most popular story maps in Cambridge. Cambridge Story Maps are created using ESRI’s ArcGIS Online Story Map Builder for the Cambridge community and visitors to the city.
The Cambridge Pedestrian Committee hosted a walking tour of Cambridge. This map was created from the 2.5 mile walking tour of the North Point area that was held on June 20, 2015. This is just one example of the many story maps Cambridge GIS provides.
