Program Description

Event Details

Join this workshop with Santa Fe City Historian Valerie Rangel to learn how to make a GIS Storymap! A GIS Storymap or Geographic Information System is a specific type of mapping technology that allows you to layer data tied to geographic points. Rather than seeing just a few key features on a static map, GIS mapping allows you to view customizable combinations of data layers in a dynamic tool. 


Valerie Rangel, The City of Santa Fe's Fourth City Historian, has gathered thoughts and ideas from the community and created ArcGIS Storymaps, which serve as a tool to enhance learning and build more knowledge of our past. This digital learning tool reflects historical truths and uplifts our shared values. The public is invited to click open three Storymap links featured below and browse online resources that include archival photos, historical essays, videos, and maps.
