What are StoryMaps
ArcGIS StoryMaps is a digital storytelling tool that helps you create engaging web pages with photos, video, audio, embedded web content, immersive blocks such as sidecars and map tours, and ArcGIS web maps and web scenes. Using an interactive builder, you can add text and media to create dynamic, informative stories that are easy to publish and share.
Developers can generate or update ArcGIS StoryMaps content programmatically using the the StoryMaps module of the ArcGIS API for Python. The Python API can streamline your workflow and save time in situations where you would otherwise need to make many manual updates using the story builder. For example, you could script the creation of dozens of templated stories each containing standard maps and details about every upcoming capital improvement project in your region or automate daily updates to a public information report with the latest charts, maps, and data.
