During the week of March 22-29th I had the opportunity to go back to Reynosa, Mexico. The first time I made this trip, I took only my son and 11 others. This event was larger with 24 folks from my church and I took my entire family (6 of us).
I had been looking for an opportunity to create an Esri Story Map for one reason or another. Just to get the professional experience (configuration, coding and what-not). This trip finally provided good reason to do that and maybe some explanation to our customers of why I was completely off the grid for 7 days. Reynosa Story
Story Maps are the latest iteration of your Uncle Ted showing your family slides of his trip to the Badlands on your cousins bedsheets over TV Dinners. It's a nice display when the data calls for a map but awkward of it doesn't. If you look at images and ask, "OK where is this now?", that's a time for a story map. As you can see below, It's cross-platform and responsive.
If you would like help in setting up a story map, let us know. After having do one I can see all kinds of applications, local government as well as private.
And if you'd like to ask question about my trip to Reynosa. I'd love to, but lets keep business out of it; firstname.lastname@example.org
