The Oscar for Best Story Map
Esri's Story Map library is an increasingly popular way to harness the power of maps to help tell a story. The Esri Storytelling with Maps Contest 2015 celebrates and rewards some of the best maps of the last year which have used the Story Maps library to raise awareness, inform or entertain the public through interactive maps.
The Grand Prize Winner of the 2015 competition is Snow Journal, a Story Map from the City of Boston. The map explores how the City of Boston helped keep the city running and responded to this year's record levels of snow.
There are a lot of other interactive narrative maps to explore on the Esri Storytelling with Maps Contest 2015 winners page. You can view the top three maps in five different categories (Travel / Destinations / Recreation, Infrastructure / Planning / Government, Science / Technology / Education, Culture / History / Events and Conservation / Environment / Sustainability).
