GeoStories

GeoStories combine interactive maps, media, and narrative. This collection contains all GeoStories from NG Education.

What are GeoStories
GeoStories are interactive slideshows that combine dynamic maps, pictures, video, and captions to take viewers on tours of places and topics. The GeoStories Publishing Platform is used by educators, organizations, and journalists to embed place-based multimedia stories in their websites and apps. The format applies National Geographic's lens of media, maps and narrative to inspire and inform people about the world.
