GIS for arts outreach:
The walls of Philadelphia are covered in murals - more than 2,700 of them. To expose an even wider community to these beautiful resources, the Mural Arts Program developed a GIS-based website, enabling users to find information and photos of murals based on their location in the city.

  • 15. Things are relatively the same.
  • 16. And each of these images is intimately tied to a location
  • 17. Providing a historical record not just of a time or an event but also of the place where it was taken.
  • 18. These images, and the stories they tell, are the foundation up which PhillyHistory.org was developed.
  • 19. Our story starts here, in the City Archives, where the image collection presented several challenges…
  • 20. The first of which was ORGANIZATION. With images stored in boxes based on the city unit they represented (Streets, Schools, etc.), finding any particular image was a significant challenge.
  • 21. The second was PRESERVATION. The oldest negatives are combustible, and newer ones are prone to warping.
  • 22. The third was ACCESS. To access an image, a visitor would have to go to the archives and have a valid research reason for entrance. Approximately 100 people per year did this.
  • 23. The last was FUNDING. Addressing these challenges was unlikely to be an inexpensive endeavor.

  • 60. “I’ve become a PhillyHistory.org junkie … This is the best use of taxpayer money I’ve heard of in a long time. I’d even be willing pay more taxes, if it would speed up the image … ” Duane Swierczynski, CityPaper 2/28/2007
