East Riding Archives – What Was Here?
archives-family-and-local-history East Riding Archives is developing this website and a mobile app, which they hope to make available in the new year. Layers of historic information, including georeferenced photographs, will be overlaid on a modern map of East Riding. Archivist Sam Bartle says: “Our app users will get push notifications to tell them when they’re in the vicinity of a historic photo location, so they can see ‘what was here’ in their surroundings. My hope is that it will gradually develop as a community project in which new content is crowdsourced from users and we’re able to upload more and more of our existing collections, so that we get a really good range of historic material, including audio and video.”
