With a stash of de-collared and rectified GLO maps I created this Spyglass into the 1852 PLSS Survey of Portland using ESRI's new Story Maps.  

 

Kudos to their team for making it so easy to create a responsive web-map.  It reminded me of this post on the forums from 5 years ago.

I keep getting an error when I try to open your map, saying it is unable to load. Has anyone else had any luck?

I'm not seeing the map, only the spyglass.

I see it on FF as well. Looks great. I really like that spyglass template. I suspect Esri purchased or licensed the app from Cartifact (if not, they should have).

 

The Story Maps apps are a great way to get your feet wet with basic interactive maps. We use them regularly with students here at Stanford. Requires no programming to create a useful and compelling map.

 

Cartographic control is not what I wish it was (naturally), I think they could do a lot more to enhance the control of how things look or function with some of these, but a great starting point for sure.

I'm kinda curious what browser/OS combo isn't working?  It's hosted outside of our domain and I am curious about the performance.

 

I really liked that particular StoryMap template because it's responsive, though it seems like a gateway into (finally) learning Javascript due to how many things I want to modify.  I might add it was incredibly easy to make.

That's a great map.  I'm always on the lookout for new ways to present historical map overlays and this is one of the coolest I've seen.
