The geography of our favorite pollinators

A new Esri Story Map released today now ranks as one of my all-time favorites, perhaps because I love macro photography, my Dad was a beekeeper, and I'm a biologist at heart (and by degree). Geography Bee: A Global Gallery of Pollinators uses the context of geography to introduce us to the fascinating world of bees using the incredible photographs of USGS naturalist Sam Droege (whose images can also be enjoyed at his Flickr gallery).



The Story Map is also a preview of a new configuration that will soon be available for the Story Map Tour, currently the most popular Story Map template. Browse the Story Maps Gallery to find more interesting map-based stories.
