Story Maps

Throughout the year, many EAST students are participating in "The Why of Where" series of trainings. These trainings featured advanced techniques in geographic information systems (GIS) by investigating subjects like Health, Disasters, Water, and History. During these trainings, EAST students learn how to develop and design their own Story Maps about their communities using easy-to-use templates.

Also, all EAST students are encouraged to design their own Story Map describing something (anything!) about their community in a spatial way.

If you have a Story Map that you would like to submit, you can contact CAST (
