-:-? Visit [[http://​​en/​app-list/​|ESRI story maps]], login and select "Build a map journal"​ in order to be redirected to the editor. Create a new map by clicking ''​Story Maps > ArcGIS-Online > My Content > Create “New Map”''​ in the upper left of your screen and follow the instructions. After that, you can create your own Web Map by accessing the Editor through ''​MapViewer > Editor''​. This is visualized in the following illustration.+

-You can do the following ​in the Editor:+  *  First, you can use maps hosted in ArcGIS Online. That can be web maps directly produced in ArcGIS Online through ​the map viewer or it can be maps/ layers you produced ​in ArcGIS Desktop and published them to your ArcGIS Online account. How to deal with that, you can see [[https://​​de/​arcgis-online/​manage-data/​publish-features.htm#​ESRI_SECTION1_94021BE7D875474681DAD20D05A90AF6| in this manual]]. As we concentrate our teaching for this summerschool on ArcGIS Online together with it's offer for ArcGIS StoryMaps, we emphasize to directly produce your maps in ArcGIS Online. Creating maps in ArcGIS Desktop, however, facilitates more opportunities to adapt your preferences for each step in an analysis. Maps from ArcGIS Online can be maps which you created by yourself, maps from your organization which are shared with you as well as maps provided by the [[https://​​de/​| ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World]]. ​
-  * **Base map** (A) allows you to select ​the base map for your own map. +  *  ​Second way to produce maps for integration in StoryMaps is a new approach added to StoryMaps last year together with the new all-in-one builder. Now you create a so called express ​map directly in the builder
-  * To select the appropriate area of the map to work in, you can use the **Address or Location search box** (B) at the top right of the screen or manually select it using your mouse. The entire world map is available to you throughout the entire process.  ​ 
-  * **Insert** (C) allows you to place layers and position notes on the map. Click “Find layer” for a list of different layers to place on your map. For a wide selection of layers, select ​ArcGIS Online ​or ESRI Maps as the location to search for layers under “Find layer”Here you will find everything from topographic ​layers to maps of public transport networks. Click “Details” to manage layers (see below). Notes or graphs can supplement your map; use “Add map notes” to choose from a series of icons in “Map notes”: pins, lines, basic shapes and other polygons. Once a note is placed on the map, you can rename it or give it a description as well as assign it an imageNotes can be edited with the “Edit” tool. +^ Type of map ^ Features ^ 
- +| web map from ArcGIS Online ​| Complex, comprehensive way of map producingNew feature-layers to use in your web map can be created directly in ArcGIS Online including complex attribute-tablesYou can upload comma seperated value-files (.csv) and Excel-files ​(.xls(x)) as well as GOOGLE tables, GeoJSON-files,​ geo-tagged images, feature collections,​ zipped geodatabases or shapefiles ​andas mentioned aboveArcGIS Desktop maps and documentsYou can conduct a lot of analysis on the attribute-tables ​and likewise geometrically or statisticallyIntegration of pre-built maps/ files/ layers from ArcGIS Online, your organization or the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World is possibleUsing the map action building block from the block palette ​in StoryMaps is only possible ​with integrated web maps from ArcGIS Online. | 
-  * With **Directions** (D) and **Measurement** ​(Eyou can place routes ​and distance/​surface measurements on the map. These can also be exported ​as layers. +| express map from StoryMap builder | Easyfast maps for simple visualizationUse this feature directly built into your StoryMap builder for producing modern ​maps for mostly simple visualizations like tour stops or just to show locations. It's possible to draw (numbered) pointslines, polygons ​and annotations. You can add some attributes as text which are displayed as pop-ups. A quite nice function is that you can draw arrows in multiple ways to visualize flows or routings|

-  * Finallythe **Details** (F) function allows us to manage each layer and note added to the mapThese are listed under “Content” and toggling ​the check box shows and removes themHovering ​the mouse pointer over an individual layer of content reveals a small triangle; clicking this triangle opens a menu that primarily allows us to adjust ​the layer’s transparency,​ i.e. how visible it is compared to other layersWe can also adjust the zoom factor at which various objects appear visible on the map under the “Visibility” section. This content can later be viewed ​in the Story Map Journal, if the map was created as a Web Map and the layers are properly configured (see above) – of course the map has to be saved before it can be used.  +
- +
-  * **Publish** (G): CAUTION - in order to be used and display later, every map must be manually published. This mainly has to do with the usage rights associated with maps; maps from ArcGIS Online ​are freely available, for exampleIf you choose to use external web maps or layersbe sure to scrutinize the usage and publication rights before ​you publish.+
