Defining Moments Canada & Esri Canada GIS Week Tech Talk: Storytelling with Story Mapping

November 16, 2022

In celebration of Geography Awareness Week and GIS Day, Defining Moments Canada and Esri Canada came together to explore how geography connects communities and how we can use it to tell our shared histories across Canada

Defining Moments Canada has used Esri’s ArcGIS technology including ArcGIS StoryMaps on many past & ongoing projects, including Insulin100: Inspiration & Innovation, Herzberg50: The Life & Career of Dr. Gerhard Herzberg, NobelCanadian: Commemorating Canada’s Nobel Laureates, and All for 9 & 9 for All: The 1872 Nine Hour Movement & Trade Unions Act. With every new project, we discover new ways to apply this interactive and engaging technology to help tell the macro and micro histories that make these defining moments significant.

This one-hour webinar showcased how DMC uses ArcGIS Online in heritage projects, how teachers & educators can implement story mapping in their teaching, and how you can get started using these freely available resources in K12.
