About the talk: Collaborative Locative Time Media with CGeomap
As a transdisciplinary collective we explore Locative Time Media, with more than a decade of experience. We created the locative media platform CGeomap, a web technology combining an interactive map on the computer with a mobile walking webapp. Our easy to use tool is a playground for many creators, uncovering a new place-based and interactive language for multi-layered storytelling. CGeomap is not making products, but processes of collaborative creation and sharing of local experiences globally. Every project is a new collaboration, allowing you and your group to build an own project, for better resilience and environmental awareness. During the workshop “Alphabet of the City” we gamify a map, for peace, and we offer a one week trial of CGeomap to build yourself a mini-project.
