There are many ArcGIS Story Maps around. Some are better than others; some take too long to load or are not well thought through. But some are excellent.
Asia’s melting glaciers
This well made Storymap focuses on melting glaciers in High Mountain Asia, and the impact this will have on water resources.
Who owns Antarctica? Antarctic geopolitics
This excellent and well presented, professionally built StoryMap illustrates who owns Antarctica and introduces the Antarctic Treaty.
Glaciation: past, present and future
This great ESRI Storymap introduces glaciers in the present day and at the Last Glacial Maximum. It uses shapefiles from resources like GLIMS or the Randolph Glacier Inventory, and the Global LGM shapefiles from Ehlers and Gibbard. It’s well made and up to date. It also uses the BRITICE map to introduce glacial landforms across the British Isles and the LGM and Younger Dryas in Britain.
Glacier lake hazards in Alaska
This ArcGIS Story by the Alaska Climate Science Centre is better than most. It’s all about glacier hydrology and glacier lakes in Alaska. The videos and pictures are well made, and interspersed with explanatory figures.
A nice, well illustrated, introduction to glacier recession and mapping glacier change over recent decades.
The recession of Glacier National Park Glaciers
This is a great introduction to using imagery to track and map glacier recession from 1966 to the present day.
Glacial Landforms Story Map
This ESRI Story Map introduces a host of glacial landforms. It was a little slow to run for me, though.
An Introduction to Sea Ice
A lovely storymap that introduces and illustrates sea ice, with illustrations of how it changes with the seasons at both poles.
Mapping Mount Everest
This storymap, by Alex Tait from the National Geographic Society, tells us all about Mount Everest and how we map it, with some beautiful graphics.
