title Travelpost: Media Access via Geographic and Temporal Information
source CORP 2003, Vienna University of Technology, 25.2.-28.2.2003 [Proceedings on CD-Rom]
summary The versatility with which digital media such as images, sounds, and video clips can be presented, combined with the ease of sharing and accessing digital media through the internet, creates opportunities for displaying media in new and useful ways. Associating meta-data (additional information about the media) with digital media extends these opportunities by enabling the media to organize itself. For example, a collection of media items that “knows” where and when they were recorded can position themselves on a map and a timeline. With these visual tools a person can better understand the location and time of a specific media item, as well as its spatial and temporal relationship to the other items. This paper presents an internet application that implements these ideas. Travelpost (, is a system for browsing media recorded during a persons travels. A map, a timeline, and a regular web browser window offer three interrelated browsers to the user. This allows the user to investigate the entire data-set, in this case a travelers journey, from a geographic, temporal, or media specific view.
