A tale about the tail: Science seeing the light of day through StoryMaps
Abstract: This is a lighthearted tale about a researcher's (nine-minute) journey to bring data out of the back office and into the public light through the unique format of a StoryMap.
Details: Tripp Corbett, Christine White, and Sudhir Shrestha (and possibly other willing victims) will show how to create a story map to share a message, its underlying research, and accompanying methods with a target community or the public. Real community StoryMaps, as well as the in-real-time map created during our presentation, will be featured. For what we may lack in theatrics, we will make up in good mapping!
