Esri Story Maps let you combine authoritative maps with narrative text, images, and multimedia content. They make it easy to harness the power of maps and geography to tell your story. GTG creates beautiful story maps for clients, involving activities such as art walk story maps, a town’s historic monuments, or the many story maps showing off different parks and recreational areas.

In addition to story maps, the Park Finder is a useful tool for the community. The Park Finder allows a member of the community to look up parks by certain criteria; for example, if they select a specific location, it will show parks within that area. Or, if the are only interested in parks with walking trails and swimming areas, they can create a search with those filters as well. The Park Finder is designed to help community members discover the activities and locations of each park in an easy-to-use map interface.
