Story Map Tour


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.

Story Map Tour app

The Story Map Tour app template allows you to deploy an app featuring a web map, geotagged images or videos, captions, and a thumbnail carousel. This application is ideal for presenting a sequential, place-based narrative, such as a walking tour, or any series of locations you would like your users to follow in sequence. This app template includes an interactive builder to help you create your story map.

For more information, see Story Map Tour on the Story Maps website.


The feature layer in the web map you use in this application must have a specific schema. This schema can be generated via the builder or you can build the tour data prior to publishing. If you create the feature layer using the builder, you must have privileges to publish hosted feature layers.

You must have Internet access to use external images, videos, or web pages in the application.
