TVNZ: Tripper Map : mapping the world - to mapping New Zealand knowledge

TVNZ - Breakfast TV
I'm still doing a semi regular spot on the TVNZ Breakfast Show. It is of course semi addictive for people like me to be asked. And yes, I do enjoy the opportunity to flick a story into the kind of areas of I am really passionate about. Sometimes this is more accidental than planned. This week was a case in point.

The video is here.

Tripper Map
In the video you will hear us discussing Tripper Map. Paul Henry the TVNZ c0-breakfast host is a notorious cynic about community lead web 2.0 stuff - so I knew that asking to talk about a tool which allowed people to put their photos on a Google Map or Google Earth was just giving him an open goal. And , of course, he went straight for it - 'why would I want to look at other peoples holiday snaps. Paul".

Good question - and a great opportunity to talk about how Flickr can produce their own flash mobs of interest, and that people were interested in sharing their material.

Mapping NZ Knowledge
But I was also able to make the connection that being able to mash photos onto Google Maps , or Google Earth was a brilliant precursor to the time when knowledge assets, stories, and other pieces of community memory, activism and research assets can be mapped using the same kind of technology that created Tripper Map.

All The Goodness
Best of all I was able to tell him that Tripper Map site uses the original code developed by the Wellington based Mark Zeman & Katie McAlpine of All The Goodness

Mark now teaching at Massey University since leaving Morse Media, the Wellington company he cofounded with Aaron Dustin. See Mark's portfolio here. Not sure what Katie is up to - but happy to redress the silence if required.

Building a New Zealand Knowledge Map.
Going forward, I'm also very keen to explore more on this notion of a New Zealand knowledge map. I'd like to link it to the idea of building a store of New Zealand Creative Commons material - i.e. make the knowledge map a way of seeing and accessing pieces of digital content that have been put into the Creative Commons domain.

Peoples Network
I'm also keen to see this idea attached to some of the content thinking that is currently being explored as part of the Peoples Network project.

In short, watch this space - there are plots to be hatched - places to visit and peole to pester.

NZ Navy - Virtual Frigate
Footnote one: One of Mark Zeman's other credits was the NZ Navy site way back in the early 90's. I remember this as a winner of the TUANZ, Interactive New Zealand Awards. The big irony was the winning feature on the site for the New Zealand Navy, a virtual frigate, was announced on the day that Max Bradford, the then Minister of Defense had his case for new frigates turned down by his Cabinet colleagues.

It was never reported whether the virtual frigate Interactive New Zealand win helped soothe his disappointment.

Footnote Two : Speaking of Flickr campaigns, just great to see the National Library Innovation team's library card campaign taking off - story here.

I've talked to a few people about things like this and it would be great to map NZ knowledge onto a map with timelines, etc. I can imagine a day when all of TVNZ's archive is geo-coded and timelined so you can zoom into a city and see what was happening and when. It would give a real sense of what these places were like in the past. I did make an proof of concept site where I mapped every news article and you could zoom into various parts of the world and see what had happened. It would be a good project to get some funding for and tie in all the archive material being opened up by various organizations in NZ.

NASA sent two engineers to Replica Rolex Watches a watch store to pick up a few potential timepieces to be worn by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin Designer handbags on the moon. After some testing it was found that the Speedmaster, then priced a heady $82, UK Replica watches would survive the trip.These new models are following in the footsteps of other ceramic Replica Rolex watches pieces from Chanel and other fashion houses and, ostensibly, you’re going to get a little better Watches Replica.
