Award-winning story map spells out flood danger to French schoolchildren

24 Feb 2017, Environ Systems Research Inst

The French award-winning Story Map Journal 'My School Underwater' helps young children better understand the dangers of flooding in their communities. The interactive story map includes a video that shows 3D flood scenarios for each school in the community of Alfortville, France, and a map created with Esri ArcGIS that shows how far floodwater could rise and inundate the schools.
