What Does Your Symphony of Apps Look Like?

What Does Your Symphony of Apps Look Like-

Apps are like musical instruments. Each app taken individually is impressive, as is a singular clarinetist playing composer Willson Osborne’s Rhapsody for Clarinet. But when apps work together, they make unparalleled music—like the New York Philharmonic does when it plays George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, in which a clarinetist produces that iconic opening glissando before the rest of the symphony joins in. The challenge is to figure out which apps work best for certain needs and when an app should work in concert with other apps—just like Gershwin had to determine how long to make the clarinet’s solo and when to have the horns, trombone, and drums begin playing.

Our Top Story Maps of 2016

Story Maps Collection

In 2016, the Esri Story Maps team focused on improving our apps in hopes of better serving our rapidly growing community of storytellers.

But we also love to tell stories ourselves. Why? Because there are causes we want to support, passions we want to indulge, partners with whom we want to collaborate, and custom apps and layouts we’d like to prototype (such as the terrorism and extinction stories below). Plus, using our apps to tell our own stories is a great way to learn how to improve them.
