Turning your iPhone into a pocket, photographic time machine! Snapture enables iPhone users to explore the historical civic photo archives of your current location. As well as this iPhone application, the project includes a ‘backoffice’ application which crowdsources the geotagging of a historical photo archive, using a community of volunteers, recruited via Mechanical Turk.
Snapture is a collaboration between Leeds Met University and the City of Leeds’ Leodis photo archive, specifically targetting the city’s tourists and residents, though the architecture is adaptable to any city and any photo archive.
Here’s how it works…
The idea is based on the notion of a blind camera that doesn’t capture an image, but captures your location and time in order to find photographs others have taken…coupled with Leodis, this adds a playful temporal dimension and a strong link to the city’s civic heritage and its future.
