MapIt1418

  1. 1. MapIt1418 Mapping Collective History Together
  2. 2. a few statements to start with
  3. 3. since early times, we’ve wanted to know where things were and when Antikythera Mechanism
  4. 4. the older things are, the less we know about their origin
  5. 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. 6. IFTF = • National Archive • Knowledgeland • Sound and Vision • Filmmuseum • Vereniging Openbare Bibliotheken • Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam
  7. 7. IFTF = • National Archive • Knowledgeland • Sound and Vision • Filmmuseum • Vereniging Openbare Bibliotheken • Centrale Discotheek Rotterdam
  8. 8. • National Archive: 1.2 million photos: • digitisation & metadata generation •  broad availability! • Professionals & volunteers • Making use of the crowd
  9. 9. monitoring “interestingness”
  10. 10. top 10 “interestingness” 4 out of 10: World War 1 photos
  11. 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. 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. 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. 14. Developing MapIt1418 • Not a typical OSM-example • Not a map-savvy organisation • Not a map-savvy audience
  15. 15. Mitigation • Thorough functional design • Interaction design • Graphic design
  16. 16. Developing MapIt1418 • “Classic” example of mash-up • OpenStreetMap • Flickr • Re-mashable: KML/GeoRSS
  17. 17. Bringing it together • Flickr API • OpenLayers • Fusebox: PHP framework • MySQL
  18. 18. let’s have a look 23
