Transcript

  • 1. MapIt1418 Mapping Collective History Together
  • 2. a few statements to start with
  • 3. since early times, we’ve wanted to know where things were and when Antikythera Mechanism
  • 4. the older things are, the less we know about their origin
  • 5. Images for the Future • Saves audiovisual heritage through conservation and digitization. • Makes digital material available for educational purposes, for the general public and for the creative industry. • Innovates the heritage sector by sharing knowledge and experience
  • 6. IFTF = • National Archive • Knowledgeland • Sound and Vision • Filmmuseum • Vereniging Openbare Bibliotheken • Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam
  • 7. IFTF = • National Archive • Knowledgeland • Sound and Vision • Filmmuseum • Vereniging Openbare Bibliotheken • Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam
  • 8. • National Archive: 1.2 million photos: • digitisation & metadata generation •  broad availability! • Professionals & volunteers • Making use of the crowd
  • 9. monitoring “interestingness”
  • 10. top 10 “interestingness” 4 out of 10: World War 1 photos
  • 11. Mapping Collective History, Together: MapIt1418 • Most “interesting” (whatever that may be) • Of all NA photos on Flickr, the WW1 collection gets the most views, comments & tags • Geographical data are mostly unknown • Activate WW1 communities to add geographical data to the collection
  • 12. MapIt1418: big leap for archive, not for mankind • ‘mashing up’ data streams from Flickr & OSM • people can put photos on map, thus adding data to Flickr • add own stories, add photos of ‘now’ situations
  • 13. So, why OSM? we like: • openness • benefits for the sector: re-usability • portability • its social ecosystem • temporal quality: up-to-date • customisation (possible phase II of MapIt1418) • Map content • Cartographic visualisation
  • 14. Developing MapIt1418 • Not a typical OSM-example • Not a map-savvy organisation • Not a map-savvy audience
  • 15. Mitigation • Thorough functional design • Interaction design • Graphic design
  • 16. Developing MapIt1418 • “Classic” example of mash-up • OpenStreetMap • Flickr • Re-mashable: KML/GeoRSS
  • 17. Bringing it together • Flickr API • OpenLayers • Fusebox: PHP framework • MySQL
  • 18. let’s have a look 23
