Geotagging: The Omissions

Monmouth University Pollak Theater

400 Cedar Avenue
West Long Branch, NJ 07764

Our workshop empowers participants to create and upload photographic documentation of overlooked communities to Google maps, building a public document of the community from within. The half day workshop can be adapted for any age and participants may use any level of digital camera. We begin with a short presentation on work with locative media and conceptual documentary projects. Participants then are given a shooting assignment based on local areas absent or overlooked in Google StreetView. We then aggregate the images using Google's image uploader, carefully geotagging them. Within a few weeks, Google's search engine picks these images up and they appear on Google Maps.
