Un ejemplo de trabajo en equipo para geolocalizar

http://bombsight.org/

En el proyecto Bomb sight se unieron historiadores, geógrafos y estudiosos de la Segunda Guerra mundial para crear un mapa de los impactos de bombas durante los raids alemanes a la Capital del Reino unido. Este ejemplo de trabajo de campo entre diversas organizaciones es un verdadero ejemplo de cómo se puede conseguir aglutinar a los más diversos individuos alrededor de un proyecto común. Puedes ver en la sección de Data información detallada de cómo quien y con qué colaboraciones se consiguió recuperar, ordenar y programar este interesante mapa interactivo.

What data do we use?

The project has been interested in exploring the mechanisms of linking & clustering historic data using geography & time, generating derived information and knowledge set in the present world which can be used for non-commercial purposed.

As a result we are using lots of different types of data – linking them together using the geographical location.

List of data used in the project:

  • Raster Maps of Aggregate Night Time Bomb Census 7th October 1940 to 6 June 1941
  • Raster Maps of  Weekly Bomb Census for 7th to 14th October 1940
  • Bomb locations for  aggregate Night Time Bomb Census 7th October 1940 to 6 June 1941
  • Bomb locations for  Weekly Bomb Census for 7th to 14th October 1940
  • 24 hours of Blitz Sept 7th 1940
  • Defences of Britain showing Anti-invasion defence locations
  • Imperial War Museum Images
  • BBC history WW2 memories

Android Mobile Phone Application with Augmented Reality

Android App mobile screenshots for Bomb SightYou can use the Android App with Augmented Reality view to reveal the locations of the bombs projected into the current urban landscape. As you are walking down a street in London and you see a contemporary building in amongst historical buildings you can find out if the building is built at the location of a former bomb site. The app uses the GPS within your phone to locate what street you are on and return information about the bomb locations that fell within 300m of where you are.

The application has a map feature so you can also explore the bomb locations on your phone even if you are not in London.
