Abstract

Web GIS applications have been used to communicate and showcase spatial information to the general public. In the demonstrated Web GIS application, the aim was to highlight the importance of a historic area, Salamis island (Greece), through its natural and anthropogenic environment using narrative text, multimedia, and web content as well as geospatial data and 3D visualization. Using StoryMaps, a widespread geographical visualization approach, used for science and spatial data communication, information, education, and dissemination, new functions combining many scientific fields were integrated, producing an interactive responsive web app in such a way that scientific knowledge can be received and comprehended by a broader audience.
