From PDF to Portal: Transforming a Static Document to a Story Map
Track: Elections, Redistricting, and Census
Authors: Katherine Foston, Mehrshad Nourani
The U.S. Census Bureau annually publishes a PDF document highlighting Small Areas Health Insurance Estimates (SAHIE). It contains static thematic map images, displaying categorized demographic data at county levels. To transform this static product to an automated story, the ArcGIS Online Story Map product was employed. As well, Web App Builder's Swipe tool was embedded. As a result, this Story Map provides users with an interactive experience to view and compare maps in more detail.
