Media Mapping CMS & API
KAKTI × Urban Archive
When starting work with Urban Archive in 2016, our first technical milestone together was to establish was a system for content creation and access. For UA, This is a database of historical images & audio, along with associated metadata from partner museum collections.
Another key step was to create a content management system (CMS) that could annotate images with geolocation data and historical context. The research team geolocated over 100,000 images in 2020, and has written extensively about the adjacent context and historical background.
