Roger F. Tomlinson, OC (17 November 1933 – 9 February 2014) was an English geographer and the primary originator of modern computerized geographic information systems (GIS), and has been acknowledged as the "father of GIS." - Wikipedia
Esri Story maps are lightweight, open-source web applications. They combine web maps created using ArcGIS Online, Esri's cloud-based mapping system, with multimedia content - text, photos, video, and audio - to interactively tell stories about the world. - Esri Story Maps
This project is a mashup of 2 story map templates to document various notable events throughout Roger's life and the awards he acquired along the way.

This project started as a concept for a submission to Esri's Storytelling with Maps Contest, but it will continue to serve as a tribute to the Roger Tomlinson who helped put GIS... on the map* sigh :)
