Chesapeake Quarterly: We’d like to hear from you

Over the past seven months our communications team has been working virtually, over Zoom and other platforms, and conducting our reporting for Chesapeake Quarterly over the phone and via email instead of meeting in person or going out in the field.

We released our most recent issue of the award-winning magazine, which focused on groundwater and how it can impact the Chesapeake Bay, in an online format using ArcGIS StoryMaps. We chose the StoryMap platform as it enabled us to include more photos and graphics, as well as add videos, to highlight key projects and concepts in each story. 

But we’d really like to hear from you, our readers. What kinds of stories, graphics, and imagery do you look for in Chesapeake Quarterly? How do you like to read us–in print, on your computer, on a smartphone or tablet, or in a combination of those? What topics that we have explored in the past would you like us to revisit? And if you read our groundwater issue using the StoryMaps format, we’d love to hear what you thought of it.   

You can take our survey here. It’s just a few questions and it will really help us better serve you, our readers.

Please feel free to add any additional comments in the space for them. We would all love to know your thoughts on how we can improve.   

Thanks for reading!
