Arkitekturbilleder.dk – how user involvement fueled development

How does a small institution with limited resources continue to stay up to date and develop their digital services?

For the Library of Architecture, Design, Conservation and Performing Arts, user involvement has been the key for several years and we have now taken a step further with our crowd-sourcing project for arkitekturbilleder.dk.

Arkitekturbilleder.dk is an Architectural picture database developed by The Library at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation. The database has documented Danish architecture since 2002 and features about 6500 pictures of 750 buildings and 350 different Danish architects. The pictures are taken by professional photographers with an architectural education.

As a case study, this presentation describes how a small, publicly-funded institution found the means in user involvement to fuel creative and technical development. This includes expert crowd sourcing and development of a mobile version and app. In times of severe and on-going cuts in public spending, Arkitekturbilleder.dk’s story might serve as inspiration for other institutions in similar positions.

  • The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation Daniel Gunnarsson
  • An old smithy – transformed in 1999 to a library Tabea von Brück
  • A chronological presentation of our development with Arkitekturbilleder.dk Background 2002- Purpose and content Mobile development User-generated content and app Crowd-sourcing Future
  • Arkitekturbilleder.dk – The library’s own product from start to finish Maja Bøgh Vindbjerg
  • Arkitekturbilleder.dk – The main focus and elements
  • Documenting architecture with education and information in focus
  • Who is the user? Who do we aim at? Daniel Gunnarsson
  • Visiting statistics – the Library vs Arkitekturbilleder.dk
  • Economic conditions for Arkitekturbilleder.dk 6575 DKK 11650 DKK
  • Findings when looking at the statistics
  • mortenjust.com/huseI am Morten Just.I live inZurich, Switzerland, work forGoogle as a productdesigner. ExVodafone, ZYB, Imity, Adobe.I sometimes do unexpectedthings with other people’sAPIs http://mortenjust.com/2010/10/07/a-location-based-architecture-guide/ http://mortenjust.com/2010/10/
  • Going mobile with arkitekturbilleder.dk/mobil Arkitekturbilleder.dk/mobil
  • Crowdsourcing and user-generated content…”produce projects that use the efforts and ability of volunteers to help scientists andresearchers deal with the flood of data that confronts them.” https://www.zooniverse.org/about
  • User-generated content to raise awareness and enrich content http://www.flickr.com/photos/david_barber/ Testversion 1 Arkitekturbilleder – app
  • Andreas Trier Mørch – the ‘royal’ photographer of Arkitekturbilleder.dk
  • Cut-backs and economic challenges The Danish National Bank – Andreas Trier Mørch

  • 30 new buildings in two months compared to the previous 60 a year
  • Luck has something to do with it Bagsværd svømmehal – Per Vissing Christensen
  • Crowdsourcing means greater diversity of the content in Arkitekturbilleder.dkGeographical spreadFrederiksværk, Odense,Copenhagen, Aarhus, Paris…Architectural spreadIcon architecture, small offices,locals, big shotsPhotographical spreadDocumentary focus but flexible and openBack-endInterfaceApp
  • Sharing is easy and cost effective using the free tools available
  • List of buildings – communication between photographers and the library
  • DASHBOARD – the crowd contributing with more than picturesWhat if, how about, how come, why is it, would you consider, is there a chance?
  • One of our goals, ending up in the app-store

  • Arkitekturbilleder.dk wants your feedback and commentsdaniel.gunnarsson@kadk.dk
  • Thank you and hope to see you at:
  • Henrik D Jensen has the wordArkitekturbilleder.dkWebsite udviklet i ModX Content Management System. Baseret på PHP.Database: Mysql databaseSitet hostes hos One.comDer er udviklet en række moduler til brug på website og mobilsite.Der er udviklet en inddateringsbackend til brug for fotograferne hvor bygninger oprettes og redigeres.Google Maps Api benyttes til kort funktioner på websitet.Google website translator er brugt både på website og mobilsite.Addthis Social plugin er brugt på website.I forbindelse med redesign af websitet blev muligheden for at geopositionere hver enkelt bygning medlængde- og breddegrad indført. At postionsdata foreligger for hver bygning åbner op for en lang række muligheder bl.a:Oversigtskort med Google MapsMulighed for at beregne afstande mellem bygningerMulighed for at finde nærmeste bygninger ud fra et givent punkt.Dette er benyttet på mobil udgaven af Arkitekturbilleder.dk. Se http://code.google.com/p/geo-location-javascript/Integration med kort funktioner i fx Iphone/Android Apps.
  • Henrik D Jensen has the wordData udvekslingDer benyttes JSON(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JSON) og XML(http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/XML) tiludveksling af data primært mellem server og forskellige moduler skrevet i javascript.Data kan således hentes som et "sæt" og bruges i forskellige sammenhænge.Dette benyttes både på website og mobilsite primært til geo funktionalitet.Morten Just har bl. a benyttet sig af denne mulighed for at kunne bygge sin udgave af et mobil site http://mortenjust.com/huseBillederFor at imødekomme behovet for forskellige billedstørrelse i forskellige sammenhænge på website,mobilsite og app er der udviklet og integreret to primære billed funktioner:Resizing - mulighed for dynamisk at kunne skalere billeder til den ønskede størrelse. Skaleringenforegår ved at kalde en url med 2 parametre:Billedets placering samt ønsket maximal bredde. Billedets dimensionsforhold bibeholdes. Fx:http://arkitekturbilleder.dk/assets/images/cache/resizer.php?imgfile=http://arkitekturbilleder.dk/images/762i1-1352124979.jpg&max_width=700
  • Henrik D Jensen has the wordCropping - mulighed for at beskære billedet til en specifik højde samt bredde. Beskæringen foregår ved at kalde enurl med 3 parametre: Billedets placering samt højde(h) og bredde(w).Fx:http://arkitekturbilleder.dk/assets/images/cache/crop.php?f=http://arkitekturbilleder.dk/images/324i1.jpg&h=115&w=115Thumbcache - denne feature benyttes på mobilsitets alfabetiske indgang. Smartphones har typisk svært ved athåndtere samtidig hentning af mange billeder.For at imødekomme dette blev der udviklet et ThumbCache modul, der på en enkelt request bygger et billede beståendeaf thumbnails af bygninger begyndende med det ønskede bogstav.Fordelen er at mobiltelefonen kun skal hente ét billede, der så via javascript og css benyttes til at vise den alfabetiskeliste på mobilsitet. Et eksempel kan ses på:http://www.arkitekturbilleder.dk/assets/images/thumbCache/052c9bc532a86420c316439edcacd442.jpgDer benyttes serverside billed caching hvor det er muligt.Ved at implementere disse forholdsvis enkle features for billedbehandling på Arkitekturbilleder.dk sikres let og fleksibelbrug af billeder i forskellige sammenhænge.Disse features for basens billeder har bla. gjort det muligt forMorten Just at etablere sit mobilsite på en let og hurtig måde.For yderligere information eller ved tekniske spørgsmål kan der rettes henvendelse tilHenrik D. Jensen på e-mail: trelane@trelane.dk
