Description

Applications for GIS can be far more than just maps, spatial and network analysis, or geocoding. The tools that are available can be fun and useful for many different types of people with varying levels of experience. With the availability with ArcGIS Online Web AppBuilder a person without much experience in GIS can make a professional quality presentation that highlights different related attributes. This talk will showcase recent applications that I created with the ArcGIS Story Map Tour and Story Map Text and Legend templates for a Purdue University GIS class. These tools show the countrywide travels of an airline pilot for a month of schedules, and the different locations and places in which he comes into contact. This highlights the variations of map templates, widgets and spatial scale allowed while having fun with GIS in a real world practice.
