Historypin + Science

Share on:

The June UK edition of Wired Magazine features an amazing photo spread on a unique nonprofit collaboration we’re involved with, which includes photographers, scientists and cartographers working to document the changes in glaciers around the world.

We’re working with the team to develop the MELT App and website (Mass Engagement and Listing Technology) that will be based on the Historypin platform.  The apps will assist in the collection of images over time and enable the public to help scientists track the glaciers on an ongoing basis.  This is just one of several unique applications we’re involved with that pairs historical photographs with scientific research and conservation, and is indicative of some of the exciting work stemming from increasingly open cultural heritage collections.
