I am fairly new to ArcGIS and just wanted to know if anyone knew of any particularly helpful tutorials online or books for making story maps?
Here is the a detailed walk through provided by Esri on how to make a story map. Within this site you can navigate around to find different templates and application types with instructions on how to create your own.
Making Family HiStory Maps using ArcGIS Online is an eLearning video tutorial that teaches you how to use a Story Map Journal (with Flickr for storing images) for sharing genealogy.
