This page is for the classic Esri Story Maps templates. If you are looking for the newer story authoring experience, the ArcGIS StoryMaps app is available in ArcGIS Enterprise as of 10.8.1.
The Story Map Journal app template allows you to create apps to present a map-based narrative organized into a set of journal entries. This application is ideal for creating compelling multimedia stories that combine text, graphics, and maps, especially where you have a lot of text and detail you want to convey. When you configure a Map Journal, an interactive builder appears that makes it easy to create your story.
For more information, see Story Map Journal on the Story Maps website.
You must have Internet access to use external images, videos, or web pages in the application.
