iOS Universal Photography
This educational tool allows you to view the history of a location through the lens of old film and video footage. Students can witness the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial, experience the 1900 World's Fair in Paris and see the Anschluß in Vienna, Austria in our growing collection of materials.
As a viewer you will have to be within 150 feet or 50 meters to view the nearby films. You can find other film locations on the map so you will know which areas to visit.
You can also submit your own content to the project by using our MacOS Application to prepare your films. The editing interface allows you to mark scene breaks in your video, identify the date of the scene, it's location and also identify things (people, events, landmarks and organizations) within the scene.
You can find video tutorials covering the various features of the app on our support page.
We are hiding the annotation tool until there is a demand for it on the iOS app. To continue to annotate and upload your films you will need to download our MacOS application which has many more features available for annotating films.
We have updated the color of our film marker for the maps. Green is not the best color choice as the land area displayed on the map is also a shade of green. Films are now marked on the map with red pins.
