Abstract

Story maps are widespread as an interactive tool used for science and spatial data communication, information and dissemination. A web-based application using story mapping technology is presented here to highlight places of interest around Corinth Gulf (Greece), a new addition in Natura 2000 areas. A tailored story map that combines thematic webmaps and scenes (3D webmaps) generated through a Geographic Information System (GIS) having a great impact on web-based visual presentations with narrative text and multimedia content was created to highlight the geological and cultural environment of the area around Corinth Gulf.
