Welcome to GeoStories, a publishing platform for organizations, journalists, and marketers to embed place-based multimedia stories in their websites and apps.

The format combines maps, multimedia, and narrative to take viewers on tours of places and topics. 

GeoStories are like map-enabled slideshows that incorporate dynamic maps, pictures, video and sound, with captions and links. 

You author GeoStories through a simple content management system, and embed them in your websites.

GeoStories are a new storytelling medium to engage your audiences in the places and topics you care about and promote your places and content.
