SSMMA showcases the Calumet Region Enterprise Zone story map
In 2017, representatives of the Calumet Region Enterprise Zone approached the GIS department at SSMMA expressing a desire to create a regional website that informs the public about their Calumet Region Enterprise Zone, the Illinois Enterprise Zone Program, local incentives and conditions, and other available resources. The GIS department, equipped with a flexible multimedia-rich platform, worked with the Calumet Region Enterprise Zone administrator and key staff from participating municipalities to develop the first of three Enterprise Zone Story Maps. The result: a story map which presents information in a way that engages and educates site visitors, informing them of the attributes of the Calumet Region Enterprise Zone. The Calumet Region Enterprise Zone Story Map is now live and can be viewed by anyone with the following link: http://calumetezone.org/.
If you are interested in learning more about the development of this story map or creating a story map for your own organization, please contact Chris Poshek, SSMMA GIS Analyst/Enterprise Zone Liaison via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
