The Story Map Cascade℠ app lets you combine narrative text with maps, images, and multimedia content in an engaging, full-screen scrolling experience. In a Cascade story, sections containing text and in-line media can be interspersed with "immersive" sections that fill the screen with your maps, 3D scenes, images, and videos. Cascade is ideal for making compelling, in-depth stories that are very easy for people to navigate.
The Story Map Cascade format presents a linear narrative with supporting content. Depending on how you want to tell your story, the maps or 3D scenes you include can be static, automated in a specific sequence, or freely interactive for your audience to explore. Browse our gallery to see how storytellers are designing immersive sections in their Story Map Cascade stories.
