Story Map Basic

The Story Map Basic app template provides you a map viewer with a minimalist user interface. Apart from the title bar and an optional legend, the map fills the screen. Use this app to let your map speak for itself. Your users can click features on the map to get more information in pop-ups. The Story Map Basic application puts all the emphasis on your map, so it works best when your map has great cartography and tells a clear story. The Story Map Basic application is also a good option when you want to embed your app in another web page.

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


You can configure the app using any of the following options:

  • Map: Choose which web map to use in your application.
  • Title: Specify the application title. The default title is the web map name.
  • Legend: Choose to display a legend for the layers included in the web map.
