Story maps combine intelligent web maps with web applications and templates that incorporate text, multimedia and interactive functions. Esri’s interactive Real Pirates of the Caribbean map tracks the adventures and travels of the scoundrels that operated in the Caribbean Sea between the late 1500s and mid-1700s. The interactive map lets students explore the travels and exploits of five real pirates of the Caribbean: William Parker, François l’Olonnais, Calico Jack Rackham, Henry Morgan and Edward Teach (Blackbeard). Students simply click through the tabs to track the adventures of each pirate overlaid on Spanish ports and pirate strongholds in the area. They can also zoom into the map to see additional details.
