This workshop explores a suite of geospatial applications that allow communities to create place-based stories around environmental topics. A University of Wisconsin Sea Grant-funded project in collaboration with the Esri Applications Prototype Lab is developing and evaluating "geotools" to foster citizen engagement and understanding of the socio-environmental complexities of Great Lakes coastal estuaries (http://maps.aqua.wisc.edu/geotools/). Three spatial narrative "geotools" will be demonstrated: 1) an "authoring" tool that leverages ArcGIS Online to construct place-based narratives; 2) a "deep map" tool that allows users to explore narratives on a desktop computer; and 3) a "mobile" tool that allows citizens to engage the narrative “in place” and submit text journal entries, photos, audio, and video based on their experiences.
