chrono map research


I’ve made a first sketch of a new visualisation I’m exploring. It’s been in my head for years: sharing a complete (or as much as possible) experience and not just pictures or texts. I want to integrate time with maps and add subjective data as an extra layer.

I’m using a wearable time-lapse camera that takes a picture every 3 seconds (there about). For now I’m using a booklet with bookmarks in different colours to annotate the pictures with sensual experiences.

This example is just indoors and I don’t use GPS. Things will be more interesting when I go outside and incorporate maps and pictures from different eras for example. The idea is to get a rich, layered map that can go back from the prehistory to our current time and record my really tiny specs of exeriences in history.

I’ve build an animation in Flash using ActionScript to add a clock. Here’s a filmstrips of different screen examples.
