Event Details

October 17, 2013 | 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm | MAC At Monmouth

Free Event

 Thurs. Oct 17

 The Mac Varsity Club 301 & 302 | 6 p.m.

Our workshop empowers participants
to create and upload photographic documentation of
overlooked communities to Google maps, building a public document of
the community from within. The half day workshop can be adapted for any age
and participants may use any level of digital camera. We begin with a
short presentation on work with locative media and conceptual
documentary projects. Participants then are given a shooting
assignment based on local areas absent or overlooked in Google
StreetView. We then aggregate the images using Google’s image
uploader, carefully geotagging them. Within a few
weeks, Google’s search engine picks these images up and they appear
on Google Maps.
