Week 12: Mapping Places

This week through the help of Tim, the group were able to experiement with Jupyter. When using Jupyter the idea was to return images to the required place (whether it be a specific street, city or area). When running Jupyter, the results returned the photos to their places and can be accessed when clicked upon. Here is an example:

Though it was discovered that the data may need to be cleaned up in order to return more accurate results for the map.

Jupyter was also used to create a heat map, as you can see below:

As for the next week, the group is looking to clean up data that didn’t return correctly and potentially make an interface for the maps. Additionally we are also looking at other ideas to present the photos.

Week 11: Mapping Places

This week we looked at visually displaying photos in the Tribune Collection through a map. A range of different options were discussed to display these images such as heat maps. Difficulties in doing so became known due to the limitations of certain sites such as Google Maps not being able to load images to a seperate map. Due to this, the group is looking to develop an app with the help of Tim in order to display certain image(s) for a specific places and have it visible with its location. Data within the spreadsheet created within the group is still being updated by members of the group to help add and enrich data to apply to the map as of next week.
