iphones and digital libraries


A pilot project to create a mobile application that enables users to explore NC State campus history using a location-aware map-based interface. The application supports a map view (using Google Maps) with geotagged placemarks for approximately 60 major sites of interest on the NCSU campus, and a browse view for quickly locating a known site by name. Each site has several historical images associated with it that are sourced from NCSU Special Collections Research Center digital archives. The first phase of the WolfWalk project will focus on deploying a "native" iPhone application available for free download from the iTunes App Store. Subsequent phases will explore the creation of a mobile website interface for non-iPhone mobile devices, and expanding the content included in the digital collection."
