Story Maps: Utilizing the NHHC Arsenal to Tell the Navy's Story

Author(s): Blair Atcheson

Year: 2018


As the repository and institutional memory of the U.S. Navy, the Naval History and Heritage Command (NHHC) preserves, analyzes, and disseminates historically and culturally relevant resources and products that reflect the Navy's enduring contributions throughout our nation's history. Unique to the Navy among the Department of Defense, the Navy's history program, library, archives, collections, and museums are combined into one Command. Initially, the Underwater Archaeology Branch (UAB) began utilizing ESRI's Story Maps to raise awareness of Navy archaeology and the protection of sunken military craft, but soon recognized the potential of using NHHC's substantial resources in telling the broader story of the U.S. Navy. This paper will explore UAB's use of Story Maps to promote archaeology and cultural resource management within the larger goals of the organization, specifically for the anniversaries of U.S. involvement in both World War I and World War II beginning in 2017.
