Emily Wilson*, Chet Arnold, Cary Chadwick, David Dickson

The University of Connecticut, Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR) has created an award-winning story map journal. The story map guides the user through Connecticut's 25 years of land cover and land cover change. Using maps, numbers and figures, the story map explores the four land classes that have experienced the largest amounts of change: forest, agricultural field, turf & grass and developed. It also examines subsidiary analyses that further explore the impacts of land conversion over time. The talk will explore the story map itself while describing how it was created including the map services, ArcGIS Online maps, basic customization and tips and tricks learned along the way.
