Nunckatessett Story Map

Below is a link to an ArcGIS online application know as "story maps". The application gives you an opportunity to present a project with an organized template which helps make maps more practical and readable for everyone else. This specific story map was an attempt to present an application that could be used when on the Nunckatessett Greenway Trail, located in Bridgewater and West Bridgewater Massachusetts. Although this story map isn't completely finished, something like this could be very useful when actually on the trail, these story maps can be accessed on mobile devices as well making very practical.
