AS PART OF OUR INVOLVEMENT in the HypARlocal project the Hedon Blog has started to map some of the articles done about the town’s local history.
Eventually, the aim will be to provide a service for those with Smartphones and other mobile devices, where you will be able to scan a particular street with your device’s camera, and an App will bring up local stories and articles associated with that particular place/street/building.
We have started mapping some of the stories and articles that have previously been written by the Blog. The resulting map on Google should be available by clicking the link below – although the results do not always look the same on different browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc).
We do want to get the historical information right – and the locations in the right places. If you can help with this, then Ray Duffill at the Hedon Blog would be pleased to hear from you! E-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment.
Click the link below to take you to the Google Map – and then click on one of the Blue place-markers to see the article associated with that location.
This is all very experimental – but very exciting!
