Story by Map

With a use of a “story map,” University of Connecticut’s Center for Land Use Education And Research (CLEAR) shows how land cover has changed in Connecticut from 1985 to 2010. Story Maps are a format created by Esri that enables the seamless combination of interactive maps with other types of information such as photos, videos, graphs and graphics. The Connecticut Changing Landscape story map  includes slides showing that increases in development and losses of vegetation are making streams and tributaries (which drain to Long Island Sound) more vulnerable to pollution. The story map is on the CLEAR website, and was created by Emily Wilson and Chet Arnold of CLEAR.
