Allen Carol is Esri's program manager for ArcGIS Online content. He is the former chief cartographer at National Geographic and was instrumental in creating the National Geographic Map Machine, the society's first interactive atlas on the web.

"I'll discuss how our story maps team combines intelligent maps, multimedia content, and web apps to tell stories about the world. I'll demo a few of our own stories, as well as efforts created by a growing community of story map publishers. I'll show how users can configure our open-source apps and templates to build and publish their own stories. And I'll exhort the NWGIS participants to "emancipate" their data to inform and inspire new audiences."  -Allen Carol
