Empower every storyteller

Create beautiful digital narratives using ArcGIS StoryMaps with the Storyteller user type. This user type is ideal for people who solely want to make stories by embedding shared ArcGIS content from their organization or by creating their own express maps. Often, people who work in marketing, communications, public relations or other content creation roles use the Storyteller user type. This user type can only be added to organizations that already have a Creator or GIS Professional user type.
