The Power of Online Maps for Outreach: Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps

Are you looking to add interactive maps to your Esri Story Map? Or are you simply ready to use online maps to share information with your colleagues or your outreach audience? Esri’s ArcGIS Online is one of the most powerful tools currently available to make and share online maps (and no programming knowledge required!). You can create maps using your own data in addition to using data posted online by people and organizations throughout the world. Whether you are using a free ArcGIS Online public account or a subscription account, you will be amazed at the ways in which you can share information and spread your outreach message. This webinar covers the basics of creating maps with ArcGIS Online and features examples of how they can be used in outreach activities, particularly through incorporation in Story Maps.

Although this session has a specific focus to the eXtension Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps the content may be applicable and interesting to others who are welcome to join.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
