We are very excited to announce that we launched a new collection of support materials for Terrastories, which provides an introduction to the application and a collection of training & technical resources to support Terrastories users! 🌍💬 Check it out here.
It is organized as a comprehensive library with guides, visuals, and tips to accompany you through the use of Terrastories. We tried hard to make these resources very accessible so that even people who are not technology experts can follow along.
There are four overarching sections to the Terrastories support materials, each with subpages:
- Overview: Basic information about Terrastories, FAQs, how to get started, and our demo.
- Using Terrastories: Detailed instructions for using Terrastories.
- Setting up a Terrastories server: Guides for the different ways that you can set up your own Terrastories server in different environments (online, offline “Field Kit”, and community mesh network); about offline maps; about the super admin dashboard.
- Miscellaneous: Other pages on support, troubleshooting, translation, additional references, information for developers, and more.
All pages in these guides can also be saved in PDF format and printed for use offline. Read more about that here.
We hope that this new Terrastories support materials site will be helpful to new and existing users of Terrastories and promote increased autonomy and accessibility. We look forward to growing and improving this compilation of resources and will keep the community updated as we add new sections! If you have feedback or suggestions on how to improve the site, please don’t hesitate to contact us via our public Discord chat server, the #terrastories channel on the Ruby for Good Slack, or the Earth Defenders Toolkit forum.
With thanks to the Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums (ATALM) who sponsored this work.
