What's going on at Recollect HQ
and other interesting ramblings!
There is much joy to be found in the interactivity offered by RECOLLECT – you can tag people, add interesting keywords, and personal stories and memories – but one of the most addictive offerings is the ability to Geotag a photograph.
My geotagging addiction started while working on the National Army Museum’s brand new RECOLLECT site. In the process of adding generalised location information, it became clear that some of the landmarks featured in the photographs could still be standing 100 years on. An addition to the node template was made on the fly and within a few short clicks the ability to search for and pinpoint the location on the globe was enabled for every photograph on the site.
After a very busy couple of months preparing two sites for launch, some of the Recollect team members are putting on their safari gear and heading out of the office. Here's a quick update of where they'll be over the next few weeks:
