Terraso’s Story Maps Just Got More Collaborative

People doing the critical work of sustaining and regenerating their land and ecosystems want to be able to tell stories about their challenges and successes. Since the beginning of this project, our co-design partners have been clear that maps are one of the best ways to convey a narrative about a place. They’ve also made it clear that the best stories arrive from the effort of teams of people, each contributing content, edits, or guidance to jointly create a story.  

Today, we’ve made it easier to build a story map with your collaborators. The author of a story map can now share draft with colleagues to provide feedback, add content, and edit before a story goes live.   

This update makes it easier for teams to collaborate on an important narrative, or for multiple members of a community to add their voice to a story. Start collaborating on a story map today.
