Institute alumni Andy Stieglitz and Aaron Ebner, founders of the Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development (AASD) in Peru, spoke about the work they did with ArcGIS Story Mapping to visually map out the communities in which they work, and present their research and stories in a more compelling way.
The event concluded with Intercultural Digital Storytelling Project (IDSP) Senior Fellows, who shared their J-terms plans to travel to Panama and work with youth on digital stories about local housing communities.
In attendance were students, faculty, and community partners that all had an interest in story mapping and GISS.
