I created this ArcGIS Storymap using online maps circulating in the news and social media, but especially with the assistance of a map created at Lurgan College. While this StoryMap was intended for my students in my cartography, regional geography, and education courses, I hope that others might find it useful. I specifically went light on the analysis as I hope my students will use these materials to draw their own conclusions. I also posted the materials in several formats to highlight the advantages and disadvantages of several presentation strategies. If you have an ArcGIS account you can use these layers to create your own customized map. There are many other digital resources that students can use on projects to create a country report.
